Sometimes I want something really quick for dinner! I am talking at least 30 minutes or less! This is when my Shrimp Fried Rice Quesadillas Recipe comes in handy. I found it on Taste of Home and it has been a favorite with my girls! I am always looking for ways to make my dishes more healthy and also, for more recipes! Thanks to I always have a great recipe at my fingertips! Since I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter is made with 70% less saturated fat and 30% fewer calories than butter, I know I am giving something good to my girls. Also, since it contains no cholesterol or hydrogenated oils, I know I am giving something good to myself too. At my age I need to watch everything that enters my mouth because I want to stay around for a long time and see my girls do great things.

This recipe is really simple! All you need is a few ingredients and you are on your way. You can make this meal for under $20.00, which means it is easy on my budget. It makes around 6 servings which is perfect for a semi-large family or a small family that likes to have left overs.


My favorite is the sticks because I can use them for just about everything. Baking, spreading, cooking and even broiling. They melt wonderful and when you use them in your favorite cookie recipe you won’t even know it is not “butter”. They are easy to use because they are labeled clearly for measuring out. I always keep one in the butter dish, softened for grilled cheese or toast. I hate getting out hard butter and trying to spread it on fresh bread. It tears the bread up and makes for a yucky sandwich.

All of the ingredients for this recipe came from Walmart. I love Walmart ( like you all didn’t know that!) and I really find the freshest ingredients! I needed two peppers for this recipe, one green and one red. I got them for 50 cents a piece! Yes, only 50 cents a piece. I did my crazy happy dance in Walmart. I would show you but I only do it around my girls because I love embarrassing them. ( score one for Mom!) They always have a large selection of veggies and ethnic foods. I know I can find everything I need at my local Walmart and I love that!
