“This dip is a huge hit with everyone who tries it. It's even better with fresh crabmeat, but canned works fine. I took it to a party and every person wanted the recipe. Serve it with blue corn chips. This one will really wow them.”

Hello! I am the author of this recipe and I want you to know that Allrecipes tweeked my original recipe. I suggest using fresh crab or crab from the seafood counter (8-10 oz). No imitation ever (YUCK) and canned only in a pinch. My recipe also did not call for 1 1/2 cups of parmesan I suggest 1 skimmpy cup, also add the herbs and spices you like to make it your own. Also this will never feed 40 people, this recipe was meant for 7-10 people. No this is not low fat, but what good thing ever is? Enjoy, and have a Happy New Year.

I took the advice of others and tweaked this recipe to my liking and received many many compliments on this dish at my monthly Supper Club. First of all I added 3 (6 ounce) cans of crab meat, 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, NO MAYO, 1 ½ cups of grated Asiago & Parmesan cheese mix, 1 cup sour cream, 2 teaspoons of crushed garlic, and ¼ cup of diced green onion. Directions for prep and cook are the same although I served in a bread bowl which was a very festive touch. Happy Cooking :>)



Ok, I have decided that the people who gave this recipe a bad review was because they did not bother to read the ratings before making this dish. Pay attention all...do NOT add the entire 1 1/2 cups of regular parmesan cheese, you must use the Italian Blend shredded cheese with the Asiago in it. Then add pepper to this recipe as well. I use more garlic and the imitation crab meat, plus 2 cans of crab meat, and I do add lump crab meat. If I am going to eat something this fattening, then it better be darn good! So, read the reviews from others and take warning regarding their add-ins. They are speaking with experience.
