I needed something to throw together for lunch and I was kinda sick of sandwiches. After reading a bunch of different blogs today, I had a craving for Shrimp Quesadillas. My experiment was a tasty one.
1/2 pound of shrimp, peeled deveined and tails removed
1 T taco sauce
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp chili powder
salt and pepper
Heat 1 T of olive oil in a medium skillet and add garlic. Heat for 30 seconds or just until fragrant. Add the rest of the ingredients. Cook over medium heat until liquid starts to evaporate and shrimp are pink and just cooked through, about 3 minutes. Remove shrimp to a cutting board and roughly chop. Set aside.
Build your quesadilla with shredded monterey jack cheese and shrimp. Add onions and peppers if desired.
