  • 12 to 16 oz Alaskan crab meat
  • 4 red bell peppers
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro finely chopped
  • 2 tsp fresh lime juice
  • 2 cup queso Oaxaca cheese grated
  • 8 small (6-7 inch) tortillas warmed
  • Hot sauce if desired


  • Rinse frozen Alaskan 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 minutes, until heated through. When cool, use kitchen shears to cut the shells open and remove crabmeat. Chop or shred meat, if desired.
  • 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 minutes for skin to soften). Seed and thinly slice peppers.
  • Mix sour cream, cilantro, and lime juice together in a small bowl; set aside.
  • To serve, divide red pepper strips, cheese and crabmeat between tortillas. Top with 2 tablespoons crema mixture. Serve with your favorite hot sauce, if desired.
