Ingredients

8 ounces cooked shrimp, diced
1 orange bell pepper, roasted or grilled and finely diced
2/3 cup fresh or frozen corn kernels, thawed
1/2 cup reduced-fat shredded Cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons all-natural barbecue sauce
Four 10-inch flour tortillas
2 teaspoons canola oil

Directions

1) Combine the shrimp, bell pepper, corn kernels, cheese, and barbecue sauce in a bowl. 

2) Divide the mixture evenly and spread over half of each tortilla. Fold over, press down gently, and set aside. 

3) Heat 1 teaspoon of the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add two of the quesadillas and cook until the tortillas become crisp and golden on the bottom, about 3 minutes. Flip the tortillas and cook an additional 2 minutes.  Repeat with the remaining oil and quesadillas. Cut into quarters and serve.
