Shrimp Quesadillas

I use low carb tortillas for this recipe.  To make them primal, you can make your own tortillas, but I don’t have time for all those steps!  Easy is my favorite 🙂

Shrimp Quesadillas

1 bag of raw, frozen shrimp

1 green bell pepper, chopped

1 yellow onion, chopped

shredded cheese (I use colby jack)

1 can of Mexican tomato sauce

10 low carb tortillas

butter

olive oil

 

Pour your red mexican sauce onto the thawed, raw shrimp and let soak for awhile.

Heat up the olive oil in your pan.  Saute the green peppers and onions until translucent.  Set aside in a bowl.

Then dump your sauce & shrimp into the pan and cook.  Drain off the excess sauce from the cooked shrimp.  Chop the shrimp up and set aside in another bowl.

In a large, flat pan over med/high heat, melt some butter.  Place a tortilla in the pan, then add cheese, peppers/onions, shrimp, cheese, and another tortilla.  While the quesadilla cooks on the first side, spread some butter on the 2nd tortilla.  Flip quesadilla.  Cook until both sides are gold brown.

Serve with salsa, sour cream, guacamole, etc…

Enjoy!
