BBQ SHRIMP QUESADILLAS

Shrimp QuesadillasServes: 4


Ingredients:

• 8 ounces cooked shrimp, diced
• 1 orange bell pepper, roasted or grilled and finely diced
• 2/3 cup fresh or frozen corn kernels, thawed
• 1/2 cup reduced-fat shredded Cheddar cheese
• 2 tablespoons all-natural barbecue sauce
• Four 10-inch flour tortillas
• 2 teaspoons canola oil


Instructions:

Combine the shrimp, bell pepper, corn kernels, cheese, and barbecue sauce in a bowl. 

Divide the mixture evenly and spread over half of each tortilla.  Fold over, press down gently, and set aside. 

Heat 1 teaspoon of the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. 
Add two of the quesadillas and cook until the tortillas become crisp and golden on the bottom, about 3 minutes.  Flip the tortillas and cook an additional 2 minutes. 

Repeat with the remaining oil and quesadillas. 

Cut into quarters and serve.
