Recipe had a good foundation but wasn’t very flavorable. I’d season differently than recipe suggest. I'd quickly sauté seafood with bell peppers and seasoning to ensure flavor throughout.
These were very good and I'll definitely be making them again. I did make a few modifications to give it a little more flavor:
I sauted the peppers in 2tsp. vegetable oil.
I added about 1/2 tsp of garlic powder
Increased the Old Bay Seasoning to 1 1/4 tsp
Added a little bit of cheddar cheese in addition to the Monterey Jack.
Again, these are quick to make and delicious.
With some protein and some veggies, quesadillas can be a whole meal in one crispy, grilled package. These easy recipes have something to please everyone.
