Quick and Yummy Eats!
One of the quickest, easiest, and yummiest foods to make is Quesadillas. When I am in a rush, and I don’t want to hit up a drive thru fast food joint, I always turn to my trusted Quesadilla. Today I decided to add shrimp, but this is just as good with all veggies.
Start with fresh veggies, I used celery, green onion and bell peppers. You can mix your veggies, go with what you like. Mushrooms would be a really tasty addition.
I then made up a quick seasoning blend and seasoned my shrimp with half the mixture and my veggies with the other half.
Doesn’t this look so yummy! Juicy shrimp, fresh mozzarella and sauteed veggies, you can ‘t go wrong with this meal.
A quick bake in the oven, or browned in a skillet, slice it up like a pizza and garnish with sour cream, avocados and tomatoes and enjoy!

1 1/2 lb of medium shrimp, peeled, deveined or 48 medium shrimp
8 medium flour tortilla shells

1/2 tbsp. chili powder
1/2 tbsp. dried oregano, crushed

Mix seasoning blend and set aside. Peel, devein and rinse shrimp. Pat dry shrimp and place in a medium bowl. Season shrimp with half of the seasoning blend and mix well. Heat a medium skillet over medium high heat and add about 2 tablespoons of cooking oil.
Add bell pepper, celery, jalapenos and onions, saute 5 minutes, add garlic and saute 1 minute more. Season with the remaining spice blend. Add shrimp to pan and cook for about 4 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
Place one tortilla shell on flat surface, top with shrimp veggie mixture, sprinkle cheeses and top with another tortilla shell. Repeat, until all mixture has been used up. You can bake the quesadillas at 350 degrees for about 15-20 minutes or heat a medium skillet with a little oil, carefully place assembled tortilla shells and brown for about 3-4 minutes on each side.
