Shrimp Quesadillas

Coming home knowing your husband wasn’t going to me home just made me lazy to prepare dinner. I decided to prepare Quesadillas. They were definitely easy to prepare.

1 tbsp of olive oil
About 1 cup of chopped mushrooms
½ medium red bell pepper chopped coarsely
½ cup medium green bell pepper chopped coarsely
½ medium onion chopped coarsely
1 cup of cooked shrimps chopped coarsely
1 tbsp of cumin powder
1 tbsp of paprika
1/4 cup of coarsely chopped cucumber

1 cup of grated mozzarella cheese
tortilla wraps

In a pan, heat the oil. Add all the first 8 ingredients and cook for 1 minute. Spread the veggies on half side of the wrap, top with grated cheese and fold the wrap.

Bake at 250 in oven toaster until cheese is melted. It’s supposed to be grilled but cooking for 3, I was too lazy to turn the grill on. Besides, the grill was outside and of course it was cold.
Serve with sour cream.

Last night I was thinking of what else to do with leftover Baked Chicken (as this might be a weekender regular feature in our dining room). I recalled that my hubby's favorite order in Friendly's restaurant is Chicken quesadilla, and lo! just in time to remind me to look for recipes for that, I saw your post! Now I wonder if cubed chicken breast will be okay as sub for shrimps?
Thanks for this instant and unexpected find.

Seems like my first comment did not register. I was saying, last night I was thinking of other ways to use the leftover chicken from Baked Chicken (which I predict to be a regular weekender item on the dining table), aside from empanada, sandwiches, and dumplings. And I recalled my hubby's favorite order at Friendly's Resto is chicken quesadilla. Glad that I found an instant find in your blog (I was going to hunt for one). Probably I can sub cubed chicken breast for shrimps?

Manang, ang sarap naman ng idea mo. Ang isa ko pang suggestion sa leftover na baked chicken is sotanghon soup. The nitty-gritty left overs actually will add flavor to your soup.
