Reviews for Havarti Shrimp Quesadillas

Creamy Havarti complements the subtle flavor of shrimp beautifully in this recipe--it's the perfect cheese to use without overwhelming the other ingredients.
These were super easy to make and absolutely great tasting! The only downside we had to making them was to flip them on the grill was a little difficult because some of your ingredients may fall out.
I also agree that some seasoning is necessary. I think next time I will add some cumin and maybe a dash of cayenne. Good base ingredients though!
I agree with some of the other reviewers that I would most definitely add a little spice to the dish. Maybe chili powder or cumin. I also like the idea of cooking the shrimp with the mushrooms. Excellent idea!
needs more spice, maybe chili powder, taco seasoning, we added taco sauce at the table.
