I really enjoyed this recipe. I just noticed now that you are supposed to put the cocktail sauce on top of the spread. Well, I mixed it right in with everything else and it turned out great. I suggest mixing all the ingredients except the crab (which I fold in at the end) with an electric hand mixer, it gives a nice whipped texture.

Since I love crab meat, I doubled the amount of meat and skipped the cocktail sauce. I would recommend using lump crab meat or the fake crab meat. I mixed everything in the food processor, and it was too creamy. It was still good, but it needed some texture. * 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened * 1 tablespoon lemon juice * 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce * 2 green onions, finely chopped * 1 (6 ounce) can crabmeat, drained and flaked * 1 (8 ounce) jar cocktail sauce

I served this at a family gathering and everyone loved it. Even my "tell me what's in it first" husband loved it and is eating the few bites left over today. I added extra lemon juice, and next time I'll add more hot sauce. I used Rachel's Wasabi Cocktail Sauce, from this website. I think this would be equally good with shrimp.
