Shrimp & Goat Cheese Quesadillas
This has a creamy tanginess that comes from the goat cheese, along with a savory blend of shrimp and olives with a little bit of spice from the jalapenos. Looking to adventure away from the classic quesadilla? This is the recipe for you!
4 6-inch whole-grain tortillas (white work too) 1/2 lb chopped fully-cooked shrimp peeled, deveined & tails off 1/2 cup goat cheese crumbled 1/2 cup roasted red peppers sliced 1/4 cup green olives chopped 1/2 jalapeno minced 2 tsp olive oil 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 425F.
In a medium bowl, mix the shrimp, cheese, red peppers, olives and jalapenos.
Lay out each tortilla and spread 1/4 of the mixture on only one side of each tortilla.
Fold the tortillas over and press gently to even out the filling in each.
Place the quesadillas on a baking sheet, brush each with 1/2 tsp olive oil and sprinkle with black pepper.
Bake the quesadillas at 425F until they are golden brown (about 6-8 minutes).
Remove from the oven and let each cool for a minute or two before serving.
