    AmyZoe's Note:

    Wow are these terrific. I never thought about making shrimp quesadillas, and I wish I saw this recipe sooner. I didn't use as much butter as the recipe called for, and I found my griddle worked great the whole way through just by starting with a little butter in the pan. I also didn't find it needed any salt because the enchilada sauce was salty enough. I served this with guacamole and salsa. If I had any cilantro in the house, I would have topped the entire mixture with a bunch of it. Recipe courtesy of The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Food From My Frontier.
