Steam the frozen crab legs in a large pot for 6 to 8 minutes, until heated through. When cool, use your crab shears to cut the shells open and remove the crab meat.

Over an open grill or medium-sized pan on the stove, roast the bell peppers until blackened. Cool slightly. Seed and thinly slice peppers.

Mix the sour cream, cilantro and lime juice together in a small bowl; set aside.

To serve, divide the red pepper strips, cheese and crab meat between tortillas. Top with 2
tablespoons of the sour cream mixture. Serve with your favorite hot sauce, if desired.
