I have become enamored of gorgonzola cheese. My fascination began with a simple plate of potato chips, covered with brie and gorgonzola. After that, I snuck some gorgonzola into my next batch of macaroni and cheese. I realized that when the situation calls for a rich, savory cheese sauce- gorgonzola is your go to cheese.
Tonight I wanted Tex-Mex. I defrosted half a pound of shrimp and sauteed them with some diced white onion and one chopped jalapeno. When all that was done, I added a handful of gorgonzola crumbled and about 2 tablespoons of whipped cream cheese. To finish it off, I squeezed in some fresh lime juice and chopped some of the first fresh herbs from my garden. I wrapped the filling in a flour tortilla and pan fried it until the tortilla was shatteringly golden brown and crisp. Garnished with salsa and sour cream, this was a great dinner!
