Recipe Notes
  • 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.
  • This is a crab hot crab dip without sour cream.
  • You could change this crab dip appetizer 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.
