  1. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  2. Eight 6-inch corn tortillas
  3. 1/2 pound jumbo lump crabmeat, picked over
  4. 4 1/2 ounces Muenster cheese, shredded (1 1/3 cups)
  5. 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  6. 1 scallion, thinly sliced
  7. 3 medium pickled jalapeños from a jar, seeded and coarsely chopped
