Cream Cheese and Crab Spread

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Mexi-Rosie

Cream cheese and crab are two of my favorite ingredients. I would use chipotle as the hot pepper sauce. The servings yield is for cracker appetizer size.

Perhaps I did something wrong in making this dip, but it was way too salty and strong-flavored for my taste. I used the best canned crab I could find and doubled the recipe and baked it in a 9" pie plate. Somehow, something went wrong.
