About this Recipe

You know those busy days when you are going back and forth between meetings or errands and by the time you are done with them it is lunchtime or past lunchtime and you haven’t eaten yet? I definitely have those days and the last thing I want to do is make a complicated meal.

How do I make these 10-Minute Shrimp Quesadillas?
First, cut the tortillas in half. I used almond flour tortillas as a gluten-free option. You can also use regular tortillas of your choosing. Then, In a large pan over medium-high heat, add the coconut oil. Heat the 2 flour tortillas until they are lightly crispy.

Once they are lightly crispy, add the dairy-free gouda (or vegan cheese of your choice), spinach, onions, cooked shrimp (optional, remove if vegan or substitute with another protein), and sun-dried tomatoes onto one side of 2 halves of the tortillas.

Top the tortillas back with the other halves of the tortillas. Allow the cheese to melt. Then, fold them over and cut them in half. Serve while they are warm and crispy!
