Artichoke Crab Spread (For the Crock Pot)

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Chris from Kansas

This is a great tasting dip that can be put together quickly. It has a thick spread consistency, but can easily be thinned with milk for dip with chips based on personal preference.

WOW! WOW! WOW! This dip was great! I didn't have enough time to make this in the crock pot so I put it in the microwave for a couple of minutes, stirring after each minute and it turned out great.I did use 2 pkgs of Starkist's (?) real crabmeat instead of immitaion and added a little salt and crushed red pepper for some umph. Definitly a keeper and will be appearing on my holiday table- thank you for sharing!
