Crab Quesadilla

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!
