Shrimp Quesadillas

Last week, my 4 year old son had to bring something that started with "Q" for show and tell. If he had it his way, he would have taken cheese quesadillas. As it was, he took a Quilt with a bunch of trains on it.

I made these after I spontaneously bought some shrimp with the peel on while getting the cod. We went with these quesadillas as a weekend lunch. My husband had to peel the shrimp because my fingers get all swollen when I handle raw shrimp. I tossed them with some Tony C's and then sauteed them in some butter. Cut them in half and put them on top of the cheese inside of a cheese quesadilla.

They were pretty good. I was trying to recreate a shrimp flameado that I get at our local tex-mex restaurant.
