Ever Evolving Food Blog

Hello Everyone! I have had this blog for years now, and as my personal life has changed, so have my tastes and eating habits...for the better!! I am now a fully plant-based eater, so my newer recipes will reflect this lifestyle and way of eating.

All of my old recipes will remain on my food blog, of course, so there will be a mixture of the old and the new for everyone to look through and choose. You can always play around with any recipe out there and make it your own, whether it's plant-based or not. There are always other options!
Thanks SO much for following! Happy Eating!

Shrimp Quesadillas

These shrimp quesadillas are quick and easy to make, so they are perfect for those weeknights when you don't have a lot of time to spare.  If you aren't a fan of shrimp, you can always make them with just peppers and cheese. 

I use a quesadilla maker to make my quesadillas, but you can always just make them in a pan on the stove top.

shrimp (about 30, deveined, tails removed)
Old Bay seasoning
olive oil
1 red bell pepper, diced
shredded, low-fat Mexican blend cheese
6 low carb, high fiber tortillas
pico de gallo for topping
sour cream for topping

Sautee the pepper and set aside.
Toss shrimp in olive oil and lay out on a foil-covered baking sheet.  Sprinkle Old Bay seasoning over the shrimp until well-coated.
Bake shrimp at 400 for 10 minutes. Set aside.
Sprinkle a tortilla with generous amounts of cheese.  Sprinkle with sauteed pepper.  Arrange shrimp around the tortilla so they are spaced out evenly (~10 per quesadilla)
Sprinkle a bit more cheese over the shrimp and cover with another tortilla.
Cook in the quesadilla maker for 8-10 minutes.  Cut with a pizza cutter, top with sour cream, pico de gallo, and enjoy!
