Questions & Replies
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!
I have to say, out of 6 of us, only my youngest and I eat any seafood. when I make crab, I make alot...on purpose! I spend a good hour after dinner cleaning crab legs to save the meat. I have made this a good dozen times and it is tremendous. The only changes I made were cheddar for mozzerella and a couple dashes of hot sauce....just a personal preference. It also freezes well, put in individual baggies shaped like the dip bowl all I do is take it out and cook it. Thanks for this recipe!

I hate to bake (almost as much as I hate to vacuum!), and I'll go to great lengths to avoid having to make cookies.
