This dip is really good! I enjoyed the lemon and cayenne which helped enhance the combined flavors of the avocado and crab. Makes a nice light mid-day snack or lunch. Thank you for sharing SusieQusie!

I served this at a seafood appy party we hosted to watch the *Eurovision Song Contest* & Icelandic election results Sat nite. I had half lb cans of lump crabmeat, so made a half recipe. I tinkered w/the recipe a bit using McCormick Lemon-Pepper Seasoning Salt + a generous amt of Tobasco for the *bite* & a bit of cream cheese as Europeans favor spreads more than dips. It was so easy to fix & yummy! Made Fri & stored in an airtight container, it was flavored to perfection! I feared the discoloration typical of using avocado, but amazingly there was NONE ... even when I polished off the meager remains for breakfast Sun! This was a big hit, SQ. Thx for sharing the recipe w/us. :-)

We nibbled on this before dinner last night and it was enjoyed by all. I did make a couple of adjustments. I used a little less cayenne than the recipe called for because dh isn't crazy about it. I also left the avocado in small chunks so it wasn't so much a dip as a cracker topper. Very good though.
