  1. In a medium-sized bowl, lightly season shrimp with salt, ground black pepper, and 1 tbsp. of chili powder. Mix and marinate in the refrigerator for 10 minutes.

  2. In the meantime heat 2 tbsp. of oil on medium-high heat in a large skillet or pan. Add onion, bell pepper, and garlic and cook until tender (about 3 minutes).

  3. Add the corn, black beans, chipotle, and ancho hot sauce remaining chili powder, ground cumin, dried oregano, 1 tbsp. of salt, 1 tsp of ground black pepper, and lime juice. Mix and cook for about 3 minutes. Stir occasionally to prevent burning.

  4. Add the seasoned shrimp and cook for another 2 -3 minutes or until the shrimp begins to turn pink mixing every minute for even cooking.

  5. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and clean your skillet before placing it back on the heat. Spray the pan with non-stick spray and place a tortilla in the pan and sprinkle cheese on one side.

  6. Divide shrimp mixture into thirds and add 1/3 on top of the cheese.

  7. Top with cheese and fold the tortilla in half.

  8. Cook until golden and crispy (about 2-3 minutes) on each side. Repeat this process with the remaining tortillas.

  9. Remove the quesadillas from the pan and cut. Serve with your choice of salsa, sour cream, guacamole, or pico de gallo.
