serves two

4 bacon slices, chopped
8 oz. peeled and deveined medium shrimp (36 to 42 per lb.), halved lengthwise
2 teaspoons vegetable oil, divided
2 flour tortillas (10-inches wide)
1 cup shredded jack cheese
1/4 cup chopped green onions, divided
sliced avocado
sour cream

Cook bacon in a medium frying pan over medium-high heat until crisp. Transfer to a paper towel to drain. Pour off grease, then add shrimp to pan and cook until pink, about 1 minute, stirring often. Set aside.

Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Set a tortilla in pan and sprinkle half of it with half the bacon, shrimp, cheese, and onions. Fold tortilla over filling and press down gently. Cook, covered, until browned, turning once, about 3 minutes total. Transfer to a plate. Repeat to make second quesadilla.

Cut each quesadilla into 4 pieces. Serve with avocado, salsa, and sour cream.
