Open Faced Shrimp Quesadilla

3:25 AM

I love a good quesadilla. Sharp cheddar, mexican flavored shrimp, and a crispy tortilla. What's not to love about this dish? If it comes together in under 10 minutes, how can that not make you happy? We use the raw tortilla land tortillas that you can buy at Costco. If you've ever had a homemade tortilla, you know the mouth-watering, chewy glimpse of heaven your taste-buds are about to experience. These tortilla's have done most of the work for you, so you can spend less time in the kitchen... and more time gobbling up those compliments.


Ingredients: 
1 tortilla 
1 tbsp vegetable oil
12 shrimp
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp fajita seasoning
1/4 cup onion
1/4 cup sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup chopped cilantro

Directions: 
Warm your oil in a pan. Dice your onion and add it to the oil, cook until translucent. Add your shrimp, cumin, and fajita seasoning. Cook until pink. Remove shrimp from pan and set aside. Place tortilla in remaining oil in pan. When you see bubles begin to form, flip it over. Then add your cheese, shrimp, and cilantro. Cook until cheese is melted. Cut into triangles and serve. 


Hope these simple and slightly elevated weeknight meals can inspire the couch potato chef in all of us. If you have 10 minutes, you can do this. 

Enjoy!
