Shrimp Quesadilla Ingredients:


  • Shrimp:  Use Small sized shrimp here.If you prefer medium then go for that size. 



  • Use pre-cleaned shrimp but fresh would make the taste even better.



  • Tortilla:  Use the soft flour tortilla which are around 9 to 10 Inch in size not the smaller 6 Inch ones.



  • Chipotle Chili in Adobo Sauce: This is the best ingredient I have used in this recipe. Soooo much flavor! 


  • Skip it if you do not want to use,the recipe still is very flavorful.


    • Veggies:  I have used a mix of Red sweet Onion, Red Bell Pepper and Tomato. You can add or skip the veggies as per personal preference.



    • Cheese:  I have used a mix of shredded sharp cheddar and mozzarella. You can go for combination of any Mexican cheese blends.


      • Spice Mix:  For most recipes I use a homemade spice mix rather than getting a new spice bottle for each recipe. 


        • Here I have mixed together Oregano,Parsley,garlic powder,onion powder,black pepper powder,cayenne pepper/smoked paprika.
