Hot Crab Dip

Several months ago my friend Rebecca brought this dip to a Christmas party. I’m pretty sure it was the first thing to disappear. My husband didn’t even get to try it (that might have been my fault). What I’m trying to tell you is that this dip is fabulous! Don’t wait for a holiday to make it–although I think it would be perfect for an Easter brunch.

The crab flavor is not too strong in this dish, which I really like. But you could easily add more crab if you like. If you want to spice things up a bit, try adding a dash of cayenne pepper. This is best served warm, but I’ll eat it just as happily at room temperature.

  1. This looks so good, especially since I am hungry right now. :)

  2. Mmmm! I’ve made a warm crab dip before but the ingredients are a bit different. This version sounds amazing, though.
