  • 2 cups grated cheese (Cheddar, Monterey Jack, etc.)

  • 8 ea. Shrimp
  • 2 each Roasted Green Chilies
  • ½ cup Sour Cream
For Salsa
  • ½ cup diced fresh tomatoes
  • ½ teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons minced Onions
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons minced cilantro


Clean and devein the shrimp. Toss with salt and lime juice, marinate 5 minutes. Grill until just cooked. Chop the shrimp.
Lightly oil chilies and grill until blistered, place in a covered bowl and let steam until cool enough to peel. Chop the chilies.

Heat a skillet over medium heat. Assemble the quesadillas; divide the cheese, shrimp, and chilies between the tortillas, sprinkle with cilantro and scallions. Fold in half and place two at a time in the skillet. Cook until each side is lightly toasted and the cheeses have melted.
