    breezermom's Note:

    Unlike most quesadillas, these are baked, not fried. These are also cut into thirds for appetizers, but if you'd like, leave them whole and have them for a meal! I love crab, and I love cheese. I also tend to like flour tortillas! So this is something that worked out well in my appetizer repertoire!

      Very good! I even would skip the mayonnaise next time just use extra cheese to help it all stay together. I made 1/2 the amount replacing the white onion with a red one. Place on 1 whole tortilla top with an other then sliced into four wedges. This was part of Menu #28779 chick out the topping I used. Made for ZWT5. Gracia.

      These were really good and very rich. I made these for lunch and DH and I really enjoyed them the DD did not care for it and she usually loves anything with crab. I am going to make these next time as appetizer and cut into small pieces instead of as a meal. Made for PRMR Jan 2009

      Oh, wow! Pure genius! I'm eating this right now for my lunch, and they are just marvelous. I used Dungeoness crab, left out the jalepeno, and since I was out of cilantro, I subbed green onion instead. I cut this down to make 1/2 dozen, which is just perfect for a lunch. Thank you so much for posting, breezermom! Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders.
