Southwestern Shrimp Quesadillas

In this fun dish, a Southwestern favorite mingles with Coastal seafood flavor. While a popular party appetizer (think margaritas, queso, Mexican dip), it can easily make a quick, entertaining meal, served with chips and salsa. Mom wears a sombrero.

1 red bell pepper sliced thinly

2 green onions sliced

1 tablespoon Old Bay Less Sodium Seasoning

6 flour tortillas (8-inch)
