Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 pound medium-size raw shrimp peeled, deveined, and tails removed
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 6 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro chopped
  • 4 tablespoons softened butter {or Country Crock}
  • 1 large mango peeled, seed removed, and chopped
  • 4 large flour tortillas

Instructions

  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season shrimp with salt and pepper. Add shrimp to hot skillet and cook until pink on both sides, about 5 minutes; flip once. Remove from heat; set aside to cool.
  • In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, cheddar cheese, and cilantro with a spoon. If needed, microwave the mixture for 10 seconds at a time. Stir after each heating - you don't want the cheese to melt, but it should have a nice spreading consistency. Taste cheese mixture, add salt and pepper to taste if desired.
  • Chop cooled shrimp into small pieces; set aside.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Spread 1 tablespoon butter on one side of a tortilla. Place tortilla in hot skillet, buttered side down. Spread cheese mixture over half of the tortilla. Top cheese mixture with about 1/4 cup shrimp and 1/4 cup mango. Using a spatula, fold the tortilla in half, over the filing. Cook 2 to 3 minutes per side until tortilla is golden brown and filling is gooey.
  • Remove from skillet, and cut quesadilla into wedges. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Top with extra cilantro and mango if desired.

Notes

I made this recipe using 8" tortillas and got 5 quesdaillas. If you ration your ingredients, you could probably get 6 smaller quesadillas from this recipe
