Lobster ‘n’ Artichoke Quesadillas
“Lobster, artichokes, cheese and spices - my favorite things,” writes Allene Bary-Cooper. “Put them together in a quesadilla and it is fantastic fare.” The cook from Whichita Falls, Texas likes to serve these quesadillas with fresh avocados seasoned with fresh lemon juice and lemon pepper.
