  1. Pre-cooked shrimp or smoked shrimp can be substituted for crab, lobster can be used more of an upscale cocktail party.
  2. Wrap these ingredients into Mission® Corn Tortillas and cover with Mission® Salsa Con Queso or prepared enchilada sauce for cheesy seafood enchiladas.

Notes & Comments: This was a really easy recipe to throw together and it went over wonderfully.  I used flaked crab from the seafood counter.
