I absolutely love Ree Drummond! If you don't know who The Pioneer Woman is then you have been living under a rock Lol! She started off as a Blogger to then, having her own show on the Food Network. One thing I love about her the most is her recipes are always step-by-step picture tutorials. She makes it so easy to follow along. I wanted to cook something easy and with under 5 ingredients last weekend. I knew quesadillas De Camarones would be perfect because it has shrimp inside and Quesadillas are a family favorite of ours.
Quesadillas De Camarones
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 pounds large Shrimp, peeled and deveined, tails off
Salt to taste
1 large onion, cut in half and then into slices
(I don't eat onions so I didn't use one but your more then welcome to)
2 1/2 cups grated Monterey Jack Cheese
7 ounces Enchilada sauce
1 Yellow bell pepper
1 Red bell pepper
1 Green bell pepper
12 large Flour Tortillas
6 tablespoons butter, for frying
Step 1: Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over a high heat. Toss in the shrimp.
Step 2: Toss around and cook until the shrimp are opaque, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with salt and reduce heat to low.
Step 3: Pour Enchilada sauce over the shrimp.
Step 4: Stir around and allow to simmer for a couple of minutes.
(I apologize about no pictures for steps 1 through 4. I completely forgot to take pictures)
Step 5: Remove the shrimp from the skillet and begin to chop it into chunks. Set aside for a bit.
Step 6: Chop bell pepper strips
Step 7: In a separate skillet, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil over high heat. Throw in the Bell peppers and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, or until the peppers have a few dark brown/black areas.
Step 8: Reomove the peppers from the skillet and set them aside.
Step 9: Sizzle 1/2 tablespoon butter in a skillet over medium heat and lay a flour tortilla in the pan. Cover with the grated cheese.
Then cover the cheese with peppers...
Then add the chopped shrimp on top of the peppers.
Step 10: When the tortilla is golden, top with a second tortilla and carefully flip the quesadilla to the other side.
Repeat with the remaining tortillas and filling.
Step 11: Cut each quesadilla into wedges and serve with pico de gallo, sour cream, or guacamole.
I made a whole tray full of quesidallas for the whole family :0) Everyone loved them but Princesses (she said she only wants the old ones I use to make Lol)
