This recipe is good but very rich. I substituted 8 oz of low fat sour cream for half of the cream cheese and still thought it was a little too rich. I love cilantro but also would cut back on that -- maybe eliminating it from the filling and just using it in the sauce. By the way, the sauce by itself, is fantastic -- would make a great dip. I will probably make this again with a few adjustments.

This sauce is a five star, going to be one of my go to sauces and dips. I gave this recipe three stars because the crab with this sauce is too rich. Let this sauce shine, it stands on its own. Next time I make this recipe, I'll use a protein that balances the richness of the sauce, like beans (or left over shredded chicken if you're a meat eater). Mixed veggies would also be great with this sauce!

Very good recipe! I started making it then remembered I had used all my cream cheese so I substituted goat cheese and it was still wonderful. The sauce was wonderful.
