    Quesadillas make a great snack as well as an easy lunch or supper! Kids just love them! This one can be easily made with shrimp, as well. :)

      These were ok. I just thought they needed more kick. They were a little bland for my taste in Quesedillas. Maybe add some hot pepper sauce or something. . .

      My husband I loved these!!! I did not have lime so I used lemon juice instead and the crab still had a great flavor. Easy weeknight meal. Thanks for a real keeper!!
