Oh my gosh this is good! Perfect summer meal that doesn't heat up the kitchen for long, great use of summer corn and tomatos. Didn't have cilantro or jalapenos, so in stead of peppers and salt, sub'd Emeril's Essense and additional cayenne. Served with salsa and light sour cream, DH and 6 yr old picky eater loved it. I always look for reviews by kittencal!

We enjoyed this Quesadillas recipe, I did increase the jalapeno peppers and omitted the cilantro, the flavors blended together well, these were served with spicy salsa, thanks for sharing Galley!...Kitten:)

These were good. I used jack/cheddar combination. LOVED the cilantro flavor with the shrimp. Made for ZWT III.
