Ingredients

  • 1 can (28 ounces) diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
  • 3 jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • QUESADILLAS:
  • 1-1/3 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies, drained
  • 1/2 cup chopped seeded tomato
  • 3 tablespoons sliced green onions
  • 1 package (8 ounces) frozen cooked salad shrimp, thawed
  • 4 flour tortillas (10 inches)
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Directions

  1. For salsa, place the first nine ingredients in a blender; cover and process until finely chopped. Transfer to a large bowl; set aside.
  2. Sprinkle the cheese, chilies, tomato, onions and shrimp over half of each tortilla; fold over.
  3. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook quesadillas in butter for 1-2 minutes on each side or until cheese is melted. Cut into wedges. Serve with salsa. Refrigerate leftover salsa. Yield: 2-4 servings (2-1/2 cups salsa).
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.

Love the salsa that goes with this. Next time I'll chop larger shrimp rather than using salad shrimp.
