I doubled the recipe for four people and it was inhaled!!!! My neighbor and I started eating it before our husbands got inside and they complained we didn't leave them enough. I did use jalapenos instead of green peppers.

Very yummy! Instead of seasoning salt, I used 1 tsp. Old Bay Seasoning. We enjoyed this dip a lot!

I've never eaten at Joe's Crab Shack, so I can't say if this recipe replicates their crab dip. But I CAN say that this was very tasty!! I love a warm crab dip, and this one was just what I was hungry for. I even had all the ingredients on hand except the green peppers, for which I substituted a much smaller amount of diced jalapeno, which added a slightly hot flavor which I enjoyed. I did have to use imitation crab, as this was all I had. My husband commented that this tasted pretty good cold, too... but I ate mine bubbly warm!

This was excellent. I added a dash of cayenne pepper and served it with Homemade Baked Tortialla Chips (#124908) which were also a big hit. I used imitation crab meat because that was all I had on hand and it was still good. I'm sure it would be even better with real crab meat.

great flavor, I added jalapeno instead too and sprinkled with cayenne pepper. was great, only thing, like tuna you dont just drain it, you must squeeze the juice out, because when it heats up, it's kinda soupy. but what great flavor

Really good and easy appetizer. I replaced the green pepper with red and yellow pepper (I don't like the green pepper) but added a substantial amount of cayenne pepper for some heat. I also used smoked paprika because its what I had and it really added a delicious smokey flavor. Definitely try it out!

I've never been to Joe's Crab Shack, but this dip was very good. I have to admit, I used leftover crumbly crab cakes instead of canned crab and it still tasted great! Thank you for helping me save my ruined crab cakes! I will definitely make this again.

This dip is delicious! I have fixed it twice for my husband and me and both times it was gone in very little time! The second time I used green onions and about 3 tsp. of jalapeno instead of the grn pepper and it really enhanced the flavor. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
