Being from New Orleans, and being a true 'Cajun cook' I create a lot of my own recipes simply by experimenting. This dip recipe came to me when I decided that adding crab boil to almost anything will make it taste incredible. Everyone that tastes it agrees! It's best when prepared a day ahead of time and reheated. Serve with chicken flavored crackers.

I rarely give 5 but let me explain. I LOVE me some seafood but have never been a fan of crawfish not to mention not a huge fan of cream cheese. I made this as a special treat for DH to go with our anniversary dinner(he loves crawfish). This was to die for! SPICY but to die for. Very good and I highly reccommend to those of you who DO love crawfish and don't mind cream cheese. I will definitely make again once the price in seafood comes down! Thanks!

being from New Orleans also, I think this is a great basic sauce... I would recommend however that if you are using left over crawfish from a seafood boil, eliminate the crab boil & cajun seasoning totally. If will be hot enough if it was from a seafood boil.
