Directions

Prep: In a medium pan, add one tbsp. of olive oil, chopped garlic and the juice from 1 lime over medium high heat. Once hot, add the shrimp and sauté until fully cooked. Remove to clean cutting board and roughly chop. For Quesadillas: 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 them 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 approx. 4 min. 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, chiles in adobo sauce and salt and pepper. Pulse together until creamy.
