Mediterranean Shrimp Quesadilla- Tomato Bowl 2011

This is the first post to start off the Tomato Bowl competition. I love quesadillas for a game time snack, but this time they have a little twist! This recipe is really easy, and will impress your game day company. Fresh plump shrimp, feta cheese, tomatoes, red onions, and olives make this a quesadilla you will want to make again. If you aren't a seafood fan you could easily sub in chicken or keep it vegetarian! Enjoy- Go Team Green Bay!!!Ingredients
