These buttery quesadillas are stuffed with breaded popcorn shrimp, crisp bacon, fresh baby spinach, thinly sliced green onions, and a melted blend of Mexican cheeses. Quick and easy, delightfully crunchy, and with just the right of gooey cheese- these Shrimp & Bacon Quesadillas take the bite of dinnertime duress.
I read an article today that put into monetary terms what I’m worth annually as a SAHM– $140,000. Six figures, who knew? Probably not many who haven’t done the job themselves. My job titles are many– Wife. Wrangler of Boys. Chef. Taxi Driver. Life Planner. Blogger. The tasks are many, and the list could go on and on and on.
With so much on my plate, it can be a struggle some days to balance everything- especially on busy weeknights. Those nights where there aren’t enough hours to get homework done, dinner on the table, and squeeze in some family time before I blink and the clock chimes to tell me to get going on the bed time routines.
This my friends is where I enlist a little bit of help. There’s no shame in admitting you need some, or even in wanting help. Some nights are from scratch nights, other nights I head to the deep freezer and pull out a box of SeaPak® Popcorn Shrimp. Then I’m back on my dinner time ‘A’ game.
Next time you’re in the frozen food aisle at your local Walmart, remember to check out the yummy variety of responsibly sourced, convenient seafood options SeaPak offers. There’s the popcorn shrimp I mentioned, Shrimp Scampi, there’s even Spring Rolls just to name a few of our favorites.

SeaPak has created an awesome recipe booklet featuring 40 meal solutions and pairings to help you take the guess work out of dinner time, and to help make meal planning and shopping easy enough that anyone can do it.

Grab one of SeaPak’s frozen meal solutions out of the freezer and feel confident knowing that in just a bit, dinner will be served and you won’t feel like it was a strength sapping marathon to get it on the table.
My go to are these quick and easy, uber yummy Shrimp & Bacon Quesadillas. They make me look and feel like a supper, Super Mom. Relaxed enough even, that I like to pair preparing them with a small glass of wine.
Specifically Black Box Wines. There’s a flavor for everything. The winner of 50 Gold Medals and 29 Wine Enthusiast Best Buys, they pair perfectly with seafood. Even better? It’s the perfect adult beverage to pair with a special occasion, or any occasion at all.
Seriously, don’t forget to grab a box of Black Box Wines’ Sauvignon Blanc, or your own favorite flavor. With all the time you save with this delicious Shrimp & Bacon Quesadillas dinner, you’ll have plenty of time leftover to temporarily set down your many hats, pour yourself a glass, crack open that book you’ve been meaning to read, and actually relax before the bedtime routine begins. How often does that happen??
Shrimp & Bacon Quesadillas are filled with crisp bites of SeaPak’s breaded popcorn shrimp, savory bacon, sliced green onions, fresh baby spinach, and a blend of Mexican cheeses. It’s budget friendly, but it tastes totally gourmet. It’s ready in a snap, which will keep you my fellow busy parent from ‘snapping’ since the time you saved fixing dinner is time better spent on you– relaxing and resting. And let’s face it– some night’s that’s a must before heading into the bed time battle.

Cook the shrimp according to the package instructions.
On one half of a tortilla, place shrimp, cheese, bacon, spinach, and green onions. Fold over other side of tortilla.
Butter the outside of the top of the tortilla. Carefully place the tortilla in a skillet, over medium low heat, buttered side down. Cook the tortilla until the tortilla is crisp and golden brown. Butter the second side of the tortilla and use two spatulas to carefully flip the quesadilla over in the pan, without losing filling. Continue cooking until this side is also crisp and golden brown.
