I like to use whole small salad shrimp for this recipe.

These were very good and very simple. I did have to change a couple of ingredients because I had no Monterey Jack & no jalapenos. But I did have pepper jack cheese and used that. I cut the recipe down to make 4 quesadillas but used nearly the full amount of cheese. Thanks for a delicious supper for my husband & me.
