I treated myself to a fresh Dungeness Crab for dinner the other evening. It was a really large crab, so I ended up with some delicious lump crab meat left over. Instead of making crab cakes, I decided to make a crab quesadilla. I mixed the lump crab meat with my favorite Mexican 2-cheese blend from Tillamook and added some chopped avocado. After heating the corn tortillas in a medium-hot pan, I added the crab mixture and topped with another tortilla. I flipped the quesadilla once to ensure the mixture was heated through and the cheese was melted. Placing the quesadilla onto a cutting board, I used a pizza cutter to slice it into quarters. The punch of the cheese paired nicely with the sweet crab and avocado. Delicious!
