  • Assemble quesadillas by placing shrimp mixture and Mexican cheese in between 2 tortillas.

  • Heat tortillas in the skillet over medium-low heat until cheese is melted and tortillas are crispy, 3 to 4 minutes. Cut quesadillas into bite-sized segments and serve.

Cook's Note:

You can substitute any cheese of your choice for the Mexican cheese blend.
