Shrimp-and-Corn Quesadillas with Avocado Salad
Veg Out by using a 10-ounce bag of frozen corn instead of the shrimp.

Pick up a bag of frozen shrimp—it's cheap and will keep for at least 3 months.

Save 10 minutes! Use a large griddle to cook the quesadillas all at once—just brush them first with melted butter or extra-virgin olive oil.
