Easy Quick Warm Weather Dinner: Shrimp Quesadillas

I've been craving Mexican inspired food like crazy lately! Although I had tons on Cinco de Mayo, I just can't get enough. Quesadillas have become my go to quick fix meal because they are super easy to make, cook quickly, and feed my Mexican food craving! These shrimp quesadillas have a Greek twist: hummus, artichoke hearts, and feta cheese filling. Add tortillas to your pantry staples list and when you need dinner in a hurry fill with whatever you have on hand (leftover chicken, day old pesto, the last of a bunch of random cheeses, etc.). Now that the weather has turned warm, making them on the grill is super fun because it gives the quesadillas a nice smoky flavor and those pretty grill marks. Make these quesadillas tonight and

I used this recipe earlier tonight, baked them with monterey jack and cheddar instead of feta, didn't use hummus or pickled veggies, and served it with salsa... it was delicious! Thanks so much YumSugar!

Sugoinna: Totally! Feel free to experiment with whatever cheese fits your fancy. I think it would be delicious with Monterey or Pepper Jack cheese as well as good old cheddar.

Sounds good. Can't wait to try it. But does it taste alright with other cheeses? I'm not a feta fan.

Oh yeah, I'm Greek, so I don't mind the Mexico-meets-Greece vibe.
