Crab Fajita Quesadillas

With no plans for dinner and a package of surimi in my fridge that needed to be used up, I made this up using the ingredients I had on hand. It turned out pretty tasty! It think I'll scramble the rest of the filling with some eggs for breakfast burritos tomorrow. Next time I make it, I'll make sure I have some cilantro on hand to use in place of the basil, and I'll definitely add avocado!

ingredients

directions

  • Soften the cream cheese in the microwave.
  • In a large bowl, mix the cream cheese, spices, surimi, shredded cheese and vegetables until well combined.
  • Spread one tortilla with 1/4 c cream cheese mixture, and top with another tortilla.
  • Melt the butter in a flat pan (I used a grill pan with a panini press), and carefully place the quesadilla in the pan.
  • Cook for 1-2 minutes, or until the cheese starts to melt, but before the bottom gets too brown.
  • Flip and cook the other side until browned also.
  • Remove to a cutting board, cut into quarters (or eighths) with a pizza wheel.
  • Arrange on serving dish, with salsa for dipping.
