Recipe Yields 2 large quesadillas (8 quarters)

INGREDIENTS:

1 bag, 31 – 40 count large raw shrimp

1 TBSP lemon juice

¼ tsp chili powder

Salt and pepper

1 TBSP mini sweet pepper

1 TBSP chilies

1 large clove garlic, minced

1 TBSP onion, chopped

PREPARATION:

Peel and rinse shrimp.  Let drain and place in bowl.  Add the rest of the ingredients and let marinate for about 30 min. (No more than 1 hour).  Drain liquid, otherwise shrimp will steam cook.

Heat large heavy skillet and drizzle 1 TBSP olive oil in the bottom.  Cook shrimp and veggies.  It shouldn’t take more than three minutes.  Shrimp will turn pink when done.  Remove from pan.

In same pan, lay a tortilla shell directly in hot pan.  Sprinkle with Fiesta cheese mixture.  Quickly lay hot shrimp on top, then put more cheese on top of shrimp.  Cover with another tortilla.

In roughly two minutes, when the bottom tortilla is browned lightly and bubbly, flip the tortilla over and cook the other side.  The great part is that the cheese has melted and will hold everything together.  Nothing is going to come slipping out of the shell.

To serve, cut into quarters.
