Crispy tortillas, melty cheese, and boozy shrimp make one stellar quesadilla. Make our Tequila Shrimp recipe, then turn it into these addictive snacks to serve with Pico de Gallo, Guacamole, and sour cream. And a cold beer wouldn’t hurt.
What to buy: Asadero is a mild Mexican cheese that melts well. If you can’t find it, try substituting mozzarella or Monterey Jack.
Game plan: For a slacker solution, leave out the shrimp, add a little more asadero, and make it a cheese quesadilla.
