Crawfish Elegante Dip

Recipe by Luby Luby Luby

This is my favorite "go to" appetizer/dip because it is so easy and tastes so great. You can serve this as a dip with crackers or serve it in patty shells, whichever you prefer.

My family has crawfish ponds in south La. and I end up with about 40 pounds of tails at the end of crawfish season and must make room for the "new crop" which is getting ready to start soon. I tried this recipe and think I could eat it over rice it's soooo good!!!! From one Lafayette, Louisianaian to another..."mais cher that's good eatin! "
