Well, I promised some Mexican deliciousness before Cinco de Mayo, and here it is! (I checked, I haven’t quite missed it!)
These shrimp quesadillas with corn, black beans, lots of cheese and an avocado cilantro lime cream sauce for dipping are amazing. But then, I think that’s true of pretty much anything in the genre! We adore Mexican food around here, so even though we don’t celebrate Cinco de Mayo here in Canada, I’ll take any opportunity to have Mexican food. Holiday, weekend, random Tuesday. Don’t really care, I will always happily eat Mexican food.
Luckily my whole family feels the same way. As long as it’s not overly spicy for the kids everyone is happy if it’s Mexican food for supper.
These shrimp quesadillas will definitely be made again. Actually, really soon because I made twice as much as I needed so we have a bunch of leftover filling, which makes me very happy. Leftovers are awesome when they involve shrimp quesadillas with an avocado cream sauce!
So Happy Cinco de Mayo if you celebrate, and if you don’t, have some amazing shrimp quesadillas just because they’re tasty. Or because it’s a Friday. You don’t need a reason for Mexican food. It’s amazing, that’s reason enough!

Have a great weekend everybody!
