Shrimp Quesadilla

I loved that broiled shrimp so much that I thought I’d use the technique for my quesadillas tonight.  Super yummy!  Will definitely make these again. I used whole wheat tortillas, cheddar cheese, and added some black beans too.  Fix with your favorite ingredients and toppings.  These were pretty spicy so I just served with some sour cream and salsa (I would have had avocados too but they looked terrible at the store today).

  • 1 pound shrimp – peeled
  • 1 recipe taco seasoning
  • 2 Tbs olive oil
  • 1 tsp fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 cup bell peppers – finely diced
  • 1/4 cup onion – diced
  • 2-3 jalapeno if desired

Combine all ingredients. Spread evenly on oiled cookie sheet.

Broil 3 – 4 inches from heat for about 8 – 10 minutes until shrimp is cooked through.

Layer each tortilla with cheese, shrimp mixture, and black beans.  Top with additional cheese and another tortilla.  Bake at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes or broil or 3 – 4 minutes each side.
