    Pufi McFluffikins's Note:

    I got this recipe from a Southern Living Magazine a couple of years ago. It was an instant favorite, and I get so many requests for the recipe that I figured I would make it easy on myself and just post it. I usually use more Old Bay, Tabasco, and scallions than it says, cause I like a little extra kick. It really is AWESOME, especially with crusty french bread.

      I LOVE this dip/spread! The basic recipe is great and leaves "wiggle" room to change it up, if desired. I use more tabasco, too, and have added tarragon and cheddar cheese.
      Thanks for posting this recipe. It's become one of my "got-to" standards.

      Mmmm, this is good stuff! I decided to try my hand at crab dip - a dish which I'd never before made OR even eaten - and am I glad I tried it! (And I should mention, I don't really like seafood, etiher, but I knew I like crab bisque, so this dish seemed worth testing out. lol) I had to take a few liberties with the recipe due to kitchen limitations (like a lack of scallions/green onions, for example) but it turned out great anyway. I used canned crab meat. Also, used Srirachi sauce instead of Tabasco, and upped the quantity a bit (as the recipe's poster suggested in the intro) because we too like spice. The extra heat didn't overpower the flavour of the crab. My husband, who also doesn't love seafood, also enjoyed this dip. So yeah, I'm a crab convert! All in all, this was really easy to make, and really well received by everyone who tasted it. Will definitely make again.

      This was so easy and SO good! I added an extra teaspoon of Old Bay, as you suggested, and it was just delish.....I will be making this again and again.
