Shrimp Quesadillas with Tomato Avocado Salsa

Yummy, yummy, yummy...that about sums up this recipe from SkinnyTaste.  I LOVE all of her recipes and this one is definitely one of my faves!!  It is absolutely delicious!!!  You NEED to give this one a try!
Shrimp Quesadillas with Tomato Avocado Salsa
1 medium tomato, diced
1 hass avocado, diced
1 lime, juice of
1 tbsp cilantro, chopped
1 tbsp red onion, finely minced
16 large shrimp, cleaned and deveined
cumin to taste
garlic powder to taste
salt and pepper to taste
cooking spray
4 scallions, chopped
6 oz. Cabot's 75% light Vermont Cheddar, shredded (I could only find 50% light)
8 tortillas (I think she used whole wheat, but I used the homemade ones from Kroger...SO GOOD!)
In a medium bowl, combine tomatoes, avocado, red onion, lime juice, cilantro, salt and pepper.
 Season shrimp with salt, pepper, cumin, and garlic powder.  Lightly spray hot skillet on medium heat with cooking spray, add shrimp and scallions.  Cook 2-3 minutes on each side until shrimp is cooked through.  Remove from heat and cut shrimp in half lengthwise, set aside.
 Heat skillet on medium heat and lightly spray with oil.  Add tortilla, top with cheese, 8 shrimp halves, and tomato avocado salsa.  When the cheese is melted and the bottom of the tortilla is golden brown, place the other tortilla on top.  Put a plate on top and flip it over onto the plate.  Then slide the other side onto the skillet.  Cook another minute and remove with spatula.
 Cut into wedges and serve immediately.
Seriously, these are nothing short of amazing.  You will feel like you are in your favorite Mexican food restaurant.  Enjoy!  :)
