Preparation
STEP 1

Mix together crabmeat, sour cream, mayonnaise, lime juice, cilantro, green onions and jalapeño. Season with salt and pepper.

STEP 2

Spread 1/8 of crab mixture onto half of a tortilla. Sprinkle with tomato, cilantro and 1/4 cup cheese. Fold in half. Assemble remaining quesadillas.

STEP 3

When ready to cook, heat a small amount of oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Place quesadilla in pan and cook on each side until golden brown, approximately 3 minutes per side. Add more oil to pan as needed to brown second side. Repeat with remaining quesadillas. Keep warm in a 200°F oven until ready to serve.

STEP 4

Cut into wedges. Serve with guacamole, salsa and sour cream, garnished with cilantro and wedges of lime.
