Was looking for a quick between snack to hold everyone over until late dinner. I google shrimp meal and this popped up, to my surprise I had almost everything. Substituted chopped shallots for red onion, taco seasoning instead chili powder. Used 4 small tortillas. My kids loved the quesadillas.
I made this recipe last week and I already made it again last night! We loved it! The only thing I added was diced tomatoes.Otherwise these were so simple and delicious!! Thank you, Elise!!!
Made this tonight and it was so yummy! Unfortunately I did not have avocado but I sautéed mushrooms, ginger, coconut cream and a few drops of lime juice and drizzled that on top. It was pretty nice! Thanks for the recipe, Simply Recipes!
This is a remarkable site…..I can’t thank you enough for all these amazing recipes. I’m one for getting bored quickly of making the same things….I made the Shrimp Quesadillas this weekend for lunch and they were a HUGE hit! Yummy…..;o)
I made these last night for a few friends, and everyone loved them! Thanks for such a wonderful recipe!
PS. I love the blog — I’m slowly working my way through all the yummy recipes!
I’ve had this before and it is WONDERFUl…I was just wondering if anyone has tried to make them with corn tortillas instead of wheat or flour? If so how did they turn out?
I made a Mexican-inspired tabbouleh on Friday night and refrigerated all the leftover, chopped-up cilantro, red onion and green peppere. How lucky for me to find this recipe on Saturday morning so that I could put my chopped vegetables to good use. I even made my own guac to go with this yummy dish. So delicious…quesadillas are my weakness. Thanks!
If the shrimp are not cooked, soaking them in brine greatly improves texture…
I do a similar take on the shrimp quesadilla, but toss in a couple of extra ingredients to make them more substantial. Instead of poaching, I saute the shrimp and toss in some sweet corn (from the freezer) and black beans. I think I need to make these sometime soon.
This is one of our go-to meals as well. In fact, we just had them on Saturday. They’re so fast, easy, and versatile. What’s not to love?
Yummy. Became a fan of shrimp tacos in Santa Fe. Now I can make my own. these look fantastique! Just a note for those of us to whom cilantro tastes like ivory soap (10% of the population) what would you substitute?
If cilantro tastes like soap to you, I would just skip it! ~Elise
lol, I’m one of those 10%, but in small doses, and if made correctly, I can withstand it
