Quesadillas are wonderfully versatile and make for great meals or snacks any time of day. We’ve added shrimp into the mix, plus chopped chilies, avocados, salsa — and delicious Sargento® Shredded Nacho & Taco Cheese to bring everything together.

  • 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil, divided
  • 8 (7 to 8-inch) flour tortillas
  • 1-3/4 cups (7 oz.) Sargento® Shredded Nacho & Taco Cheese or Sargento® Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese - Traditional Cut
  • 1 cup (8 oz.) small or coarsely chopped cooked shrimp*
  • 1 can (4 oz.) chopped green chilies, drained
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro or thinly sliced green onions
  • 1 ripe avocado, peeled, pitted
  • 2 Tbsp. salsa
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic salt
  1. Brush 1 tablespoon oil over 4 of the tortillas. Place oiled sides down on cookie sheet. Combine cheese, shrimp, green chilies and cilantro; spoon evenly over tortillas, spreading to edges. Top with remaining tortillas, pressing down to compact filling. Brush remaining 1 tablespoon oil over tops of tortillas.
  2. Bake in a preheated 450°F oven for 6 minutes or until golden brown on bottom. Use a large spatula to turn quesadillas over. Continue baking until tops are golden brown, about 2 minutes longer.
  3. While quesadillas are baking, prepare guacamole by mashing avocado with salsa and garlic salt. Cut quesadillas into quarters; serve with guacamole and, if desired, additional salsa.
