This recipe has been on our Christmas menu for as long as we can remember – at least more than 20 years. This 6-Ingredient Hot Crab Dip originated from a fellow teacher who taught with our mom (thanks Mr. Suits). We serve it with a variety of crackers. You can even mix this ahead of time, and warm it on location, but just note that it may take a little longer to heat through this way.

Notes about this 6-Ingredient Hot Crab Dip recipe
- If you are on a budget, you can make the dip with only one can of crab meat.
- Canned crab meat is found in the same aisle as canned tuna. There is usually only one or two different brands.
- You could change this recipe up by swapping out the canned crab for canned shrimp. Yum!
- Let the cream cheese come to room temperature on the counter before mixing.
- If the dip feels really thick, add additional milk 1 teaspoon at a time until you get the desired consistency.
