8 whole wheat tortillas, buttered ononeside
Shredded Queso Blanco
Finely chopped red onions, sauteed
Texas Hill Country Peaches, thinly sliced
24 fresh caught shrimp, marinated for 30 minutes (recipe below)and then grilled

Shrimp Marinade

Pineapple juice, preferably fresh
Olive Oil
4 cloves of crushed garlic
Texas Hill Country Peaches, thinly sliced
Cayenne Pepper
Fresh Cracked Black Pepper
Sea Salt


Layer tortilla, cheese, 6 shrimp per quesadilla, red onion, peaches, a little more cheese, and the top tortilla.

Assemble all four.

Preheat oven to 400.

Cook for 10 minutes or until top is brown and crispy.

Then flip very carefully and continue baking until cheese melty and top brown and crispy. Accompany with guacamole and sour cream.
