PREP:

FOR QUESADILLAS:

*Note - Spray down pan with oil between each quesadilla.

Over medium heat, lay out 2 tortillas for approx 1 min each side. (You can do all of them ahead of time and keep under a tea towel to keep warm or two at a time as you go.)

Lay one tortilla into pan, add cheese, shrimp, and another layer of cheese. Lay another tortilla on top and mash down with a spatula. Cook for approx 4min on each side or until cheese is melted.

Once off the stove, cut the quesadillas into quarters and serve!

FOR GUACAMOLE:

In food processor, combine the meat of 3 avocados, the juice of 1 lime, garlic powder, cilantro, chilies in adobo sauce & salt and pepper. Pulse together until creamy. I highly recommend tasting and adjusting to your preference. Some don't like as much cilantro, some may want it spicier and add more chilies!
