Crabby Party Dip is awesome. Set this out with a bowl of tortilla chips at your holiday party, and it will surely disappear before you can say Fa La La. Happy Holidays!
Ingredients (Fills one pie plate)
8 ounces light cream cheese, softened
8 ounces light sour cream
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce (optional)
12 ounces imitation crab meat, diced
1/4 cup finely diced red bell pepper
1 tablespoon finely diced onion
1/2 teaspoon ground paprika
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese
Step 1) Use an electric mixer to beat the cream cheese in a medium size mixing bowl for about 30 seconds. Add all remaining ingredients except for the shredded cheddar cheese, and blend well.
Step 2) Transfer the cheesy crab dip mixture to a pie dish (9 inch diameter). Spread so that the top is even, and sprinkle with shredded cheddar cheese.
Step 3) Bake your Crabby Party Dip in a preheated 400 degree oven for 15 minutes, or until the dip is bubbly and the top begins to turn golden brown.
Step 4) Allow to cool slightly (5 minutes or less) before serving.
