 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/3  cup           Unsalted butter
      1/4  cup           Vegetable oil
    1                    Garlic clove -- minced
      1/2                Medium onion -- finely chopped
    1                    Poblano chili
    1      pound         Fresh cooked lump crab meat
      1/4  cup           Mayonnaise
      1/2  teaspoon      Salt
    1      tablespoon    Minced fresh cilantro
   12                    10-inch flour tortillas
    1 1/2  cups          Grated jalapeno jack cheese
 Place the butter and oil in a medium saucepan and heat over low heat until the
butter is melted. Pour all but 2 tablespoons of the mixture into a small cup and
add the garlic and onion to the pan. Saute over medium-high heat until
translucent, about 3 minutes.
 Remove from the heat and stir in the chili, crab, mayonnaise, salt, and cilantro.
Mix well. To soften the tortillas, place them on a heated grill or skillet for
about 15 seconds on one side, then turn. Brush one side with the butter-oil
mixture, turn the tortilla over and spread the crab mixture on one half of the
tortilla, and top with a tablespoon of grated cheese.
 Repeat until all the tortillas are filled. At this point, the quesadillas can
either be sauteed or finished in the oven. If sauteing, heat a large saute pan or
skillet over medium-high heat. Cook for about 2 minutes on a side, or until
golden brown . Or preheat the oven to 375 degrees and bake on a cookie sheet
until the tops are golden , about 5 minutes. Cut into quarters and serve.
