Smokey Tomato Shrimp Quesadilla

I know that you haven’t heard from me in a few days. I feel so guilty if I don’t post in more then two days. Truth be told, I have been a little busy. Sometimes when I get home from work, make everyone’s dinner, clean up then put the kid to sleep, I just don’t feel like sitting in front of the computer typing! Even now, my eyes are half closed. The guilt got to me tho, so I had to post at least one recipe. 
Last  week, I wanted a quick lunch while the baby was napping and this is what I came up with! It was so… so good!!

Makes one:
1 tbs olive oil
1 tbs smoked sun-fried tomatoes (chopped small)
about 10 small shrimp
1 garlic clove
1 tbs chopped green onion
2 tbs Monterrey Jack cheese
2 tbs Smoked sharp cheddar cheese
2 whole wheat medium tortillas

1. Heat up the oil in a medium skillet. Add the sun-dried tomato and saute for about a minute.

2. Add the shrimp and saute on both sides until pink and there is no more transparent spots.

3. Add the grated garlic, stir well. Saute for a few seconds and take out of the skillet.

4. Spread Monterrey Jack cheese on the tortilla, top with green onions. Place on the hot skillet. Top with the shrimp/tomato mixture and smoked cheddar cheese. Cover with the other tortilla.

5. Saute the quesadilla for about 2-3 minutes on each side.
