Quesadillas are like tacos and that means you can use whatever filling you like. In our house, they make the perfect snack, but many times we make them as the main meal, for lunch or dinner. Another one of our favorite flavors is parmesan cheese, and this cheese goes great with shrimp so that’s how we came up with the idea for these delicious and crunchy shrimp quesadillas. Serve them with guacamole or your favorite salsa.
