I think my new favorite flavor combination is crab with avocado. I loved the Cilantro and Lime Crab Salad with Avocado Halves so much I decided to use the same flavors together to make a quesadilla for lunch the next day. I recently won a package of Tortilla Land corn tortillas from Two Peas and Their Pod and I couldn’t wait to use them. I precooked the tortillas a little bit first then layered them with Jack cheese, the crab mixture followed by a bit more cheese. I loved the flavor of the crab mixture with the fresh corn tortillas and homemade guacamole. This was a quick and simple recipe to make but made my lunch extra special. Thanks for the great tortillas Maria!Crab Quesadilla with Homemade Guacamole: Recipe and Photos by For the Love of Cooking.net
- 1/2 cup lump crab meat
- 1 tsp jalapeno, diced finely
- 1 tsp red onion, diced finely
- 2 tsp cilantro
- Juice from 1/2 a lime
- Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste
- Dash of cumin
- 2 fresh corn tortillas
- Jack cheese, shredded
- Homemade guacamole
Note: If you are using par cooked tortillas, cook them in a hot skillet for 30 seconds on each side before preparing your quesadilla.
Combine the crab meat, jalapeno, red onion, cilantro, lime juice, sea salt, freshly cracked pepper, and cumin together in a bowl and gently mix.
Heat a skillet over medium heat. Place a corn tortilla in the skillet then sprinkle a bit of cheese; then add the crab mixture followed by a little more shredded cheese. Place the other tortilla on top and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Remove from the skillet and let cool for a minute before slicing. Serve with fresh guacamole. Enjoy.
