Spicy Hot Crab Dip

are you looking for a great hot dip recipe for your upcoming superbowl party? look no further, because here it is! This is hot and spicy and yums...... As an aside, if you prefer chicken just buy a small pre-cooked  rotisserie chicken, shred it up and add to the dip instead of the crab. This will actually save you money on the crab. although the crab is very yummy too. happy eats!

ciao! happy Tuesday everyone!


1 medium onion (sliced thin)
6 tblspns of butter saute both in a frying pan then
1 - 8 ounce block of cream cheese then
1/4 cup of Frank's Red Hot or Texas Petes (I prefer Texas Pete) then
1/4 cup of milk (I did use the milk, next time I am going to replace with sour cream as I found the milk to make it a bit runny and I had to add a couple teaspoons of corn starch to thicken, it still came out good)
mix till all is melted then add in
2- 4.25 cans of crab drained then
add in
1 package of fresh crab meat (you can use imitation to save $ but I don't think it would taste the same)
then place all ingredients in a casserole dish and top with
1 cup of cheddar jack shredded cheese or cheddar cheese
place in the oven and broil for approximately 3-5 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbly on the top

{I served with mini garlic breads I made with a french baguette that I cut in 1-inch pieces which I broiled to toast to a crispy brown for about 4 minutes and then brushed with olive oil, garlic salt, italian seasoning and parsley. I also included some tortilla chips for dipping as well}

Details: Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 4 minutes: Total Time: 14-15 minutes Yield: One Spicy Hot Crab Dip will feed approximately 12-15 adults.
