What you need:
(touch checkbox to add ingredients to your shopping list)
12-16 oz. Alaska crab meat (from 2-3 lbs. Snow or Dungeness crab)
4 red bell peppers or 10-12 oz. bottled roasted red peppers
1 c. Mexican crema or sour cream
1/2 c. fresh cilantro, chopped
2 tsp. fresh lime juice
2 c. grated Queso Oaxaca or Monterey jack cheese
8 small (6-7 in.) tortillas
hot sauce, if desired
What to do:
1. Rinse frozen Alaska Crab legs under cold running water to remove any ice glaze; pat dry with paper towels. Discard towels. Steam or boil frozen crab in a large pot for 6 to 8 min., until heated through. When cool, use kitchen shears to cut the shells open and remove crabmeat. Chop or shred meat, if desired.
2. Over an open flame (grill or cooktop), roast bell peppers until blackened. Cool slightly; rub off skin with a paper towel (or place in a paper bag for 5 min. for skin to soften). Seed and thinly slice peppers.
3. Mix crema, cilantro and lime juice together in a small bowl; set aside.
4. To serve, divide red pepper strips, cheese and crabmeat between tortillas. Top with 2 Tbsp. crema mixture. Serve with your favorite hot sauce, if desired.

Cook's Tip: Alaska Crab is already fully cooked, so thawed crab legs may be shelled without steaming or boiling.
