I’m using chives, from My Hanging Herb Garden, for both my Jumbo Lump Crab Mini Tacos And Crab Guacamole. Above I’ve shown a few different ways you might like to serve these recipes. Whether serving them with crispy pita chips, warm tortilla chips, or mini tacos, will impress family and friends.

Jumbo Lump Crab is so versatile. It starts out as a “blank slate” to which you can add any ingredients you like. The options are endless. I’m going to share my two favorite ways to enjoy crab.

Prep Time: 30 Minutes
Yields: 6 mini tacos
Yields: 6 tostadas
Equipment: large mixing bowl, elevated oven-proof wire rack, 1 rimmed baking sheet pan, rubber spatula, chef’s knife, round cookie cutter

Ingredients For Jumbo Lump Crab Mini Tacos:
1 pound jumbo lump crab meat
1 1/2 limes, juiced
1/4 cup of red onion, finely minced
1/4 cup Fresno Chili, seeded and minced
2 tablespoons fresh chives, finely minced
2 tablespoon of cilantro, roughly chopped
1 tablespoon Kosher salt
pinch of freshly ground black pepper
1 package of round wonton wrappers

Directions For Mini Crab Tacos:
Place the lump crab meat into a bowl. Next add chives, finely minced red onion, minced Fresno chili, cilantro, lime juice, Kosher salt, and fresh ground black pepper. Gently toss all the ingredients together.

Ingredients For Crab Guacamole:
4 avocados, pitted and diced
1/4 cup fresh store-bought Pico de Gallo (thoroughly drained of their juice)
1 1/2 limes, juiced
1 Fresno chili, seeded and minced
1/4 cup red onion, finely diced
2 tablespoons cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
2 tablespoons Kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup of crab mixture for topping

Directions:
Half and seed all 4 avocados transfer into a large mixing bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl. Using a fork mash the avocados. Do not mash until completely smooth. Allow some chunky pieces to remain for texture, mix to combine. Add the jumbo lump crab meat to the guacamole. Using a rubber spatula gently fold in the crab meat. Reserve 1 tablespoon, per tostada, of jumbo lump crab meat for garnish.

Directions For Wonton Taco Shells:
Preheat oven to 350-degrees F.
Place an elevated oven-proof rack on a rimmed baking sheet pan. Spray the rack with non-stick cooking spray. Place the round wonton wrappers over the wire rack (as seen in pictures above) to form a taco shell. Spray the wonton wrappers with non-stick cooking spray.

Bake for 8 to 9 minutes. Remove the wonton wrappers from the oven and let cool slightly. Gently remove shells from the rack, then carefully spoon in the crab filling. There you have it my Jumbo Lump Crab Mini Tacos And Crab Guacamole.

Note: Place 1 teaspoon of guacamole on the bottom of the plate to use as “food glue”. This will enable the tacos to stand up-right on the plate. Serve three for an appetizer.
