Shrimp Quesadilla with Green Chile Dip

Makes 4 servings

Prep Time: 15 min
Chilling Time: 1 hr
Cooking Time: 12 min


Green Chile Dip:

  • 1/2  cup dairy sour cream

  • 1     green onion (including top), sliced

  • 1/4  cup diced green chiles

  • 2     Tablespoon chopped parsley

  • 2     Tablespoon chopped cilantro

  • 1/4   teaspoon dried leaf oregano

  • 1/8   teaspoon garlic salt


  • 4     teaspoon butter or margarine

  • 4     flour tortillas (about 8-inch

  • 1     cup small cooked shrimp, patted dry

  • 1/4  cup diced green chiles

  • 1     cup shredded Cheddar cheese


  1. To prepare Green Chile Dip: Process ingredients in a food processor until smooth.  Cover and refrigerate 1 hour.

  2. For each quesadilla, over medium heat, melt 1 teaspoon of the butter in a non-stick skillet.  Place tortilla in pan; when tortilla is slightly warm, place 1/4 cup of the shrimp, 1 tablespoon of the green chiles and a 1/4 cup of the cheese on half of tortilla.  Fold tortilla over cheese to make a half circle. Cook, turning as needed, until cheese is melted and tortilla is lightly browned on both sides for about 2 to 3 minutes. 

  3. Remove from pan and keep warm. Repeat with remaining tortillas, adding 1 teaspoon butter to pan for each quesadilla. Cut quesadillas into pie shaped wedges.  Serve with chile dip.
