Mexican Fiesta Crab Crisps


Here's another recipe from Mission Foods, and it's a jim dandy! Perfect for snacking or as appetizers at a party, I make these quite often, and just as often double the recipe.

Unfortunately, even with just the two of us at home we usually manage to finish off the whole bunch of these Crab Crisps, so it sometimes actually serves as lunch or supper, served with a cold bebida or two.

Actually, as simple and delicious as these are, maybe it's not that unfortunate after all...

So here you go: MEXICAN FIESTA CRAB CAKES

Ingredients:
  • 2 Mission® Light or Fat Free Flour Tortillas
  • 6 oz. Alaskan Crab meat (can use imitation crab meat)
  • 1/2 cup diced Red Bell Pepper
  • 3 Tbsp. reduced calorie Mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbsp. Italian Parsley
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped Chives
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh Lime Juice
  • 1 Tbsp. Dijon Mustard
  • 1 Tbsp. grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 4 drops Tabasco Sauce

Directions:

Cut tortillas into 6 wedges each and spray both sides lightly with cooking spray. Place pieces on an ungreased baking pan and bake in a pre-heated 400 degree oven for 10 minutes or until crisp.

Combine remaining ingredients in a medium bowl and mix well. Spread a rounded tablespoon of crab mixture on each tortilla wedge; place wedges on an ungreased baking pan. Broil for 5 minutes until lightly brown. Serve immediately.

Can it get any simpler than that?

Buen provecho!
