Crab Dip

Everyone LOVES this dip.  It is so easy to make! My friend Melissa shared this recipe with me. She makes it for a Christmas party she and Paula have each year.  Now you can make it for your Christmas party or any other occasion, too.

  • 1 lb. of lump crabmeat
  • 1 large white onion, finely chopped
  • 1 bunch of green onions, chopped
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1 t. Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning
  • 2 (8 oz.) cream cheese
  • 2 T. Crystal hot sauce
  1. In a skillet, on medium heat, sauté the onions and green onions in butter, until limp
  2. Add the Tony’s, then add the cream cheese and stir until fully melted
  3. Add the crabmeat, then the hot sauce and mix will
  4. Serve in a chafing dish or shallow crock pot
Tips and Tricks:
  • This can be made ahead and kept in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve it. 
  • I use 1/3 less fat cream cheese, when I make this dip.
  • I serve this with crackers.  Flaky buttery crackers like Club or Ritz are good.
