King Crab Quesadillas



1 C. Shredded Cheddar Cheese

4 oz. Cream Cheese

6 oz. crab meat (canned or imitation works great also, just drain it)

1/2 red bell pepper, finely chopped

2 green onions, chopped

1 Tbsp. orange juice

4 8-inch flour tortillas


1.Let cream cheese sit out until it is room temperature. In a mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, cheddar, red pepper, green onion and orange juice. Mix together well.


2.Fold in crab meat gently.

3.Spread onto 1/2 of each of the four tortillas and fold over to make quesadilla.

4.Preheat pan on stovetop over medium heat (level 5 out of 10 on my stove).

5.Place quesadillas in dry pan (no olive oil, butter or cooking spray) and let the tortillas get brown and crispy – about 3-4 minutes. Flip over and brown other side another 3-4 minutes. You can cover the pan during this time to keep the heat in and help melt the cheese inside the quesadillas.

6.Use a knife or a pizza cutter to cut them into quarters and serve!
