DIRECTIONS

  • Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over high heat. Throw in the shrimp.
  • Toss around and cook until the shrimp are opaque, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with salt and reduce the heat to low.
  • Pour in the tomato sauce.
  • Stir around and allow to simmer for a couple of minutes.
  • Remove the shrimp from the skillet, and chop it into chunks. Set aside.
  • In a separate skillet, heat the remaining tablespoon of olive oil over high heat.
  • Throw in the onion and peppers and cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until the peppers are have a few dark brown or black areas.
  • Remove the peppers from the skillet and set them aside.
  • Sizzle 1/2 tablespoon butter in a skillet over medium heat and lay a flour tortilla in the pan. Cover with grated cheese.
  • Cover the cheese with pepper and onion mixture.
  • Lay the chopped shrimp on top of the peppers.
  • When the tortilla is golden, top with the second tortilla and carefully flip the quesadilla to the other side, adding the other 1/2 tablespoon butter to the skillet at the same time.
  • Continue cooking until the second side is golden.
  • Repeat with the remaining tortillas and fillings.
  • Cut each quesadilla into wedges and serve with pico de gallo and guacamole.
