Shrimp and Crab Quesadillas

Welp, it is Superbowl Sunday and as any good American we are sitting in front of the TV, stuffing our faces with fattening food and having a great time. One of the "finger" foods I made is a Shrimp and Crab Quesadillas. Someone gave this recipe to me, but I made just a few changes to it. They were yummmy!!!

8 oz cooked shrimp
8 oz lump crab meat
1/2 cup fresh corn kernels, I used frozen
1/2 cup pico de gallo
1 small can chiles
1 1/2 cup each shredded pepper jack and cheddar cheese
2 tsp crushed red pepper
2 tsp garlic
salt and pepper
6 8 inch flour tortillas

In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients except for the cheese. *Note* depending on the ingredients used, this could be a bit watery, so make sure you have drained the shrimp/crab prior to mixing in the bowl. Top 3 of the tortillas with some of the 2 cheeses (about 3/4 cup) and about 3/4 cup of the mixture. Place the remaining tortillas on top. Cook quesadilla in a non-stick skillet over medium heat until browned (3 - 4 minutes), flip and cook 3 minutes more or until cheese is melted. Cut into wedges.
