Chili Lime Crab Cake Taquitos
1 lb. Phillips Crab Meat (special recommended)
2/3 cup panko bread crumbs
1 egg
2 Tbsp. buttermilk ranch dressing
2 tsp. Oriental chili garlic paste
3 tsp. lime juice
1 Tbsp. cilantro, chopped
12 flour tortillas, 5 inch
2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

Chipotle Avocado Mayonnaise
1 ripe avocado, roughly mashed
1/3 cup chipotle mayonnaise
1 tsp. lime juice
salt and pepper to taste

Grilled Corn Salsa
6 ears fresh corn, husked
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. ground cumin
salt and pepper to taste
1 lb. fresh salsa, available at most grocery stores in the produce aisle
¼ cup white wine vinegar

Cooking Instructions
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Prepare Grilled Corn Salsa: Rub the corn with the oil and sprinkle with seasonings.
  • Grill over an open flame grill until evenly marked and cooked throughout. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  • Once cool, cut the corn from the cob and add to the fresh salsa in a 1:1 ratio. Add the vinegar and adjust seasonings to taste.
  • Meanwhile, combine all taquitos ingredients except tortillas and oil in a large mixing bowl and chill in refrigerator for 10-15 minutes to allow ingredients to settle.
  • Divide mixture into twelve cigar shaped portions. Roll each portion in a lightly oiled tortilla. Place taquitos, seam side down, on a lightly oiled baking sheet.
  • Bake in a 350°F oven for 12-15 minutes or until tortilla shells are lightly browned and the internal temperature is 165 degrees.
  • Meanwhile, prepare Chipotle Avocado Mayonnaise by combining all ingredients in a small mixing bowl.
  • To assemble: Place the corn salsa underneath the taquitos (cut taquitos on the diagonal and stack four halves per serving).
  • Dollop the avocado mayo next to each taquito half.
