  1. Combine roasted red peppers, cilantro, lime juice, and chili powder in a shallow dish. Toss chopped shrimp in the lime mixture. Chill in the refrigerator.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a skillet over medium heat and add olive oil. Saute onion in the hot oil until tender and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add shrimp and lime mixture and saute until shrimp are pink and cooked through, about 3 minutes. Remove mixture from the skillet.
  3. Assemble quesadillas by placing shrimp mixture and Mexican cheese in between 2 tortillas.
  4. 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.
