  • In a mixing bowl, beat together cream cheese, sour cream, worcestershire, hot sauce, and dry seasonings.
  • Stir in the sauteed onion/pepper/cracker mixture.
  • Gently fold in the crabmeat -- careful not to break up the lumps too much.

  1. Perfection for the blue crab of Maryland. Had leftover crab-meat from pickin' Right now, to buy (2021) crab-meat picked is over 64. dollars. I picked my own, so it wasn't as costly. But this is perfect recipe to bring in the millions. I took a great photo, but, makes it up close. This was divine. Great for rice crackers or bread from the oven crisped.
  2. OMG! I just made this and it was as Rita said...SINFULLY RICH AND CREAMY. I wanted it to be more of a full meal so when I sauteed the onions and peppers (which I used red, green and yellow), I added cut Asparagus spears and sliced mushrooms. Then in addition to the Crab, I added about a pound of small cooked Shrimp. Afraid it would be dry, I added a touch more Sour Cream and Mayo and a splash of Milk. I will share this with two sets of neighbors and I will be the hit of the "hood". AWESOME!
  3. SINFULLY RICH AND CREAMY!!!!!! Oh man I feel guilty and I used low fat cream cheese, sour cream and mayo! Seasoned perfectly. I did add fresh garlic when sauteing the onions and peppers. Then right to the pan I mixed the remaining ingredients (1 less bowl to clean). Thank you Thank you for a yummy snack. Oh this makes a large amount and I know my DH and I can`t eat it all. At least we shouldn't! ;) I`m going to add the leftover to pasta to make a crab alfredo dish.
