Refrigerate and marinate for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, heat a skillet over medium high heat and add the shrimp with the remaining 2 tablespoons of beer. Cook until the shrimp is pink and opaque, abut 3 to 5 minutes.
  2. To make the quesadillas, heat a large nonstick skillet or electric griddle over medium-low heat. Add a bit of cheese on the bottom of each tortilla, then divide the shrimp evenly between the two. Cover with the mango, tomatoes, onions and remaining cheese, then top with the other tortillas.
