Recipe of the Week: Shrimp Quesadillas with Spicy Mango Salsa!

Hola Readers, Familia, Friends and those that enjoy an occasional peek!  Everyone is welcome here!  I know that for the past couple of weeks, I've been focusing on healthy dishes and I'm still focused.  However, this week I stumbled upon a recipe I could not resist!  Besides, isn't it all about portion size too!?  I say yes and this week I am splurging because I find nothing wrong with that! 
As I was saying, I stumbled upon this week's recipe over at The Tasty Fork.  From what I found, Meghan enjoys making time for home cooked meals and by the look of her meal presentation, the girl can cook!
