Baked Crab Quesadillas Appetizers

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by breezermom

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.
