A characteristic that makes tortillas such a beloved food is the fact that you can get quite creative with the ingredients you decide to place inside of them. Just about anything that excites the taste buds can go inside, and in this case, we’re sharing a recipe we found that uses a common type of seafood: shrimp. Let’s begin.
- A cup of shredded, reduced-fat Monterey Jack cheese
- Half a pound of peeled and cooked shrimp
- Half a cup of drained tomato salsa
- Four whole wheat tortillas of eight inches
- Vegetable oil spray
Preheat the broiler and then slice the shrimp from one end to the other. Turn the heat to medium and use a nonstick skillet to warm. Use the vegetable oil spray on the skillet and then place a tortilla in the skillet. Spread about half of the salsa on the tortilla before placing half of the shrimp. Put aside a ¼ cup of the shredded cheese, which will be used for sprinkling on each tortilla. Use the rest of the cheese to sprinkle over the shrimp.
Cover the tortilla with a second tortilla and then place a lid over the skillet. Cook for about two minutes before removing the lid and sprinkling a pair of tablespoons of the cheese you set aside on top of the tortilla. Place the skillet under a broiler for about a minute and then remove it from the oven before transferring the tortilla over to a plate using a spatula.
