Hot Crab Dip

The recipe for this hot crab dip will leave you oh so happy. The dip is loaded with crab meat, red pepper, corn, celery, cheese and jalapenos that add that perfect kick to it. What’s so great about it is that you can use it as a dip, a side or add it to toasted bread as serving as canapés. This is such a versatile and simple combination that can be used in many ways.

Dips have got to be my favorite treat at parties. Whether it’s super bowl, a basketball game or just friends getting together for fellowship or tea. Dips kind of are a staple and need to be present. Or is that just my opinion? Oh and I forgot canapes. Those are also a must at parties as well.

If you are not a fan of crab, try this Buffalo Chicken Dip.

{*If you will be serving this as a side, use 1½ to 2 (8oz each) packs of crab meat and cut meat into larger pieces (like I have pictured in the photos or larger). If you want a creamier taste, chop the crab meat really small and use 1 (8oz) pack to 1½ (12oz) packs crab meat (depending whether you want the taste to be accented on the meat or a creamier/cheesier taste).}

Ingredients:

1 – 2 (8oz each) packs crab meat, see *above

1 celery stalk

½ medium red pepper

1 large jalapeno

1 cup corn

1 (8oz) cream cheese

½ cup mayo

½ cup sour cream

1 ½ cups cheese

Salt, pepper

6oz baguette

2 Tbsp butter

1 Tbsp oil

½ tsp garlic powder

Directions:

Chop celery into really small pieces. Chop jalapenos into really small pieces. Chop red pepper into pieces. Chop crab into small or large pieces.

In a bowl combine cream cheese, mayo and sour cream. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add cream cheese mixture and cheese to the vegetables/crab meat. Mix everything.

Transfer to a baking dish. Bake in the preheated oven at 355°F for about 25-35 minutes.

mixed and ready to bake

If you want to use baguette crisps with this dip try this method. It’s delicious and easy to make. Slice baguette loaf into about 18-20 slices (depending on how thin you want the slices). In a bowl combine olive oil, melted butter and garlic powder. Generously brush tops of baguette slices and bake in oven 8-12 minutes (the longer you toast them, the crispier they will become). * See picture above

    Hi! Could I put this in a crock pot and get the same results?

    • admin 12/23/2017, 12:36 pm Link Reply

      Yes, that would be great. However, I cannot tell you exact timing as I’ve never tried it.

    Hello Valentina ☺
    So here I’m prepping this dish with my toddlers. One is cutting the red peppers and the other is mixing the dairies..as I’m get ready to mix everything together I grab the can of corn and there’s about a Tbsp left. Haha! Cooking with toddlers! ? so that’s all we had. It was very good, but I’m sure it would have that “crunch” if I had more corn!! Husband asked if he could take half of it so he could share it with his coworkers tomorrow. The kids loved too! Thank you!! ?

      Innka, that’s fantastic. Love, love, love hearing that there are families you cook together with kids. Such wonderful memories made! Bravo you guys.. The corn, oh my, soo sweet. Sounds about right, I love it. Good job mamma…

    Does this reheat well? Or can it be made ahead of time? I am thinking about using tomato instead of pepper.. since husband not a fan of red peppers

    • admin 04/07/2015, 10:52 pm Link Reply

      Masha, You can definitely prepare it even 2 days ahead. Just chop everything, don’t mix and keep refrigerated. Mix everything before putting into the oven to bake or few hours before. Oh if hubby is not a fan definitely skip the peppers;) but a tomato would be great in this I think, thanks for the idea..=)..

    What kind of cheese? Mozorella?

    • admin 12/13/2014, 1:05 pm Link Reply

      Natasha,
      Thank you hon. I Really Really appreciate it :^)…

  • Allyonka 12/12/2014, 11:58 pm Link Reply

    What a cool idea with the baguette. Do u use them as chips and dip or do u load the dip on there like a canape?

    • admin 12/13/2014, 1:04 pm Link Reply

      They can be used both ways:).

  • Masha 12/12/2014, 11:56 pm Link Reply

    Is it really spicy or should I add few more jalapeños if I want it spicy?

    • admin 12/13/2014, 1:03 pm Link Reply

      Not spicy at all. Just has a kick to it. Add one or two more jalapenos for “spicy” or add hot sauce:):)
