Spicy Shrimp Quesadilla

 Hey guys!  I got some things to tell you today!!  Oh and a super yummy, quick recipe for ya!

First of all I want to tell you a little bit of the Pledge for EVOO which is where you pledge to switch from butter to olive oil during the month of August which is National Olive Oil Month!

To kick off the National Olive Oil Month and sway even the biggest butter fan, Pompeian is partnering with movie theatres to swap movie theatre popcorn butter with Pompeian Olive Oils, and man oh man is that going to be delicious!

Pompeian is a leader in the olive oil industry so you know they are good!  And they are the number one selling Extra Virgin Olive Oil in the U.S.  So making the switch is easy!

I decided to make the switch in my favorite easy lunch recipe Spicy Shrimp Quesadilla.  Plump spicy shrimp are nestled between two crispy tortillas all melded together with gooey, creamy pepper jack cheese.

Pledge for EVOO

I usually saute the shrimp in butter but since I am taking the pledge I switched to Pompeian Safflower Oil.  I also switched the butter I use to crisp up the tortillas for EVOO.

Safflower Oil

 The tortillas were crisper with the oil, the shrimp were juicer, this switch made for an amazing update to my favorite lunch.
