More About This Recipe
  • Need an easy dinner to feed a crowd? Grab your bag of frozen shrimp out of the freezer and fry up these quick quesadillas! Start by thawing your shrimp, this is easily done — just add them to a colander and run cold water over them. While the shrimp are draining, chop up your tomato and grate your cheese. Then, it’s as simple as heating up your skillet and layering the ingredients between two tortillas. Don’t forget those bacon bits! Their salty, smoky flavor perfectly complements the briny shrimp and the cheese adds just the right amount of richness. And if shrimp quesadillas just aren’t your thing, Betty’s got plenty more how to make quesadilla recipes to round out your recipe box.
