How Not To Make A Quesadilla

Tacos and quesadillas can be easy, quick, tasty dinners. We had tortillas leftover from recent chicken taco nights, so we decided to make spinach, tomato, shrimp, and cheddar quesadillas. Mom and I got hungry so we made ours before SP got home from work. Mom made herself a wrap sandwich with the tortilla & filling. I made this oozy mess.
It was easy to make. Took only 10-15 minutes in the oven. But look at these photos. Tacos & quesadillas are dishes I cannot make. I always over stuff them. Too much filling and then it oozes out and all over the place and I have a huge mess. Also, the spinach made the bottom soggy, so in the future, I would probably put it on after heating the cheese, shrimp, and tortilla. I also need to curb my cheese enthusiasm. Don't get me wrong - lots of cheese is sooooo yummy, but it also gets kind of greasy and helps everything else ooze out as it melts.
Next taco/quesadilla night, I'm just going to have to wait for SP to get home to make mine. He's much better at it. He rarely, if ever, over stuffs the tortillas. Me? I end up wearing it and needing a fork and 3 napkins. At least my messy creations taste good.
