Crab Tacos

We love love these.   They’re easy and are fresh and perfectly summery.

4 Roma tomatoes, halved, seeded and sliced (I used 2 ample handfuls of grape tomatoes)
1 large clove garlic, minced
2 large jalapenos, halved, seeded, sliced, divided
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, divded
3 T fresh lime juice
1 t olive oil
1/2 c chopped onion
8 ounces cooked crab, shelled
8 taco shells or tortillas
1 cup lettuce, thinly sliced
1 cup shredded jack, cheddar, OR mozz cheese
1 avocado, thinly sliced
1/4 cup chopped gr onion

Put tomatoes, garlic, one jalapeno, 1/4 cup cilantro and the lime juice in food processor or blender and combine to desired thickness.  Add salt and pepper. Set aside.

In large skillet, heat oil, saute onion and remaining jalapeno until soft, about 4 minutes.  Add crab, cook until warm (2 minutes).

Warm tortillas, fill with crab, top with lettuce, cheese, avocado.  Sprinkle with green onion and cilantro.  Add salsa.
