- In medium bowl combine all ingredients for crabmeat mixture.
- Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
- Using a pastry brush, lightly coat 1 side of each tortilla, with beaten egg.
- Sprinkle each of 2 tortillas, egg sides up, with 1 tablespoon sliced green onions.
- Take remaining 2 tortillas egg sides facing down and place on top of onion sprinkled tortillas.
