    2) In a large skillet, add the olive oil, preheat it over medium heat then add the onion, jalapeno, bell pepper, garlic and charred corn kernels, cook for about 8 to 10 minutes or until the veggies cook down quite a bit.

    3 )Add the chili powder, cumin and oregano, stir to mix well and then add the chopped shrimp along with a good pinch of salt and cook for an additional 3 minutes or until the shrimp is fully cooked through, finish with a squeeze of lime and some chopped cilantro.

    4) Build your quesadillas with the filling, cheese and tortillas and cook them in a lightly greased skillet until golden brown on both sides, serve with some sour cream and dig in!
