Warm Crab Dip

Warm Crab Dip from EricasRecipes.com

Mmmmmm. Warm Crab Dip. Is there anything better? I was once at someone’s house and they refused to share their crap dip recipe with me, so I surreptitiously procured it from their recipe file. That is how seriously I take crab dip. Ten years later, this is my own recipe, and it is sized for a party. But this recipe can easily be cut in half for fewer people – like I did for the photo.
