Weeknight cooking disasters are the worst. You’re on a tight schedule and just want to eat (and feed the other members of your household) as soon as possible. The first time I made this dinner was actually a total disaster. I was apparently without my brain that night. I made a last minute decision to have creamy shrimp quesadillas instead of tacos. I could have just scooped the filling nicely into a warm corn tortilla, but noooo, I had to try to go the extra mile and whip out the cast iron grill pan. Had I thought about the cleaning of the grill pan that would follow, maybe I would have been saved. In my head, I envisioned perfect grill-marked little shrimp quesadillas, so after lightly oiling the tortilla and topping it with cheese, shrimp filling, more cheese, and another oiled tortilla, I laid that baby on the piping hot grill pan and watched the cheese start to melt, bubble, and ooze yummily.
