Recipe Cuisine: Mexican Recipe Category: Cheese Appetizers Yield: 6 Servings
Ingredients :
  • 1 tablespoon(s) olive oil
  • 1 pound(s) shelled & deveined shrimp
  • 3 clove(s) garlic, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 - limes
  • 4-5 cup(s) pepper jack cheese, shredded
  • 16 - flour tortillas
  • 1 can(s) vegetable cooking spray
  • 3 - avocados
  • 3 - chiles in adobo sauce
  • 1 teaspoon(s) garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon(s) dried cilantro
  • - salt & pepper, to taste
  • 1 - lime
Intructions :
  • PREP: In a medium pan, add one Tbsp of olive oil, chopped garlic, and the juice from 1 lime over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the shrimp and saut until fully cooked (pink & opaque, approx 5 min). Remove to clean cutting board and roughly chop
  • FOR GUACAMOLE: In a food processor, combine the meat of 3 avocados, the juice of 1 lime, garlic powder, cilantro, chilies in adobo sauce, salt, and pepper. Pulse together until creamy. I highly recommend tasting and adjusting to your preference. Some don't like as much cilantro, some may want it spicier and add more chilies!
  • FOR QUESADILLAS:*Note - Spray down pan with oil between each quesadilla. Over medium heat, layout 2 tortillas for approx 1 min each side. (You can do all of them ahead of time and keep under a tea towel to keep warm or two at a time as you go.) Lay one tortilla into a pan, add cheese, shrimp, and another layer of cheese
  • Lay another tortilla on top and mash down with a spatula
  • Cook for approx 4 min on each side or until cheese is melted
  • Once off the stove, cut the quesadillas into quarters and serve!
