Hot Chile Crab Dip

Hot Crab Dip with Chiles

Chile Crab Dip – easy, rich, popular version of the classic dip. Great on crackers, bread, chips, or whatever

This is a classic favorite, great for any get together and especially game day parties. I’m taking this to a Christmas Eve family gathering.

I bought the lump crabmeat at Costco. It comes in 1 pound tubs for about $16. Okay, it’s not cheap. I’ve used the imitation crab and it’s just not the same. Of course, anything with this combination of ingredients is going to taste pretty good (and it’s great for the diet), but it’s worth using the real thing. I also used a hot green chile. If you are using a mild chile, taste it before putting it in the baking dish – you may want to add more chiles, perhaps even doubling the amount.

On a diet? Just serve it with celery sticks. That makes it a diet dish, right???
