Crab Quesadillas

Dinner last night, from the December '06 Eating Well.

1 c shredded cheddar
2 oz cream cheese, softened
4 scallions, chopped
1/2 red bell pepper, finely chopped
1/2 c chopped fresh cilantro
2 tbsp chopped jalapenos (opt.)
1 tsp freshly grated orange zest
1 tbsp orange juice
8 oz crabmeat, drained
4 eight-inch tortillas

Combine cheeses, scallions, bell pepper, cilantro, jalapenos, orange zest and juice in a medium bowl.  Gently stir in crab.  Spoon mixture onto tortillas, fold in half and fry in canola oil over medium heat until golden on both sides, about 3 - 4 minutes per side.

The filling was a little too sweet for my taste.  I think it was the orange zest and juice, and I used WAY less than the recipe called for because I had my doubts.  I'm thinking the next time I make this I'll leave out the OJ and maybe add some garlic.  (Because I can hardly cook anything without garlic, it seems unnatural somehow.) What do y'all think?
