Cure for the Common Chicken

I got tired of chicken tonight. The thought of defrosting a slab of meat the size of my right hand left me fatigued.

So, we did shrimp instead.

Instead of going on about how wonderful shrimp is, I will leave you with a free FBTSOYP recipe.

"Flying By The Seat Of Your Pants" Shrimp Quesadillas

handful of cooked shrimp (diced, if you'd like)
red bell pepper
red onion
s & p
grated cheese (we used cheddar)
lime wedges

Thinly slice the red bell pepper and red onion. Saute in olive oil until peppers are soft and onions are slightly caramelized. Toss in shrimp. Shake in some cumin, salt and pepper.

Take a tortilla and sprinkle some cheese and pepper/onion/shrimp filling on top. Sprinkle on more cheese then top with second tortilla.

Cook quesadilla on skillet till cheese melts and tortilla is warm and crisp. Flip and repeat.

Serve with sour cream, salsa and a lime wedge.
