Grilled Corn and Crab Dip

Pat Duran Recipe

By Pat Duran kitchenchatter

This is a great summertime dip and also great for the tailgate parties soon approaching. This is good hot or cold.
You might want to double this recipe and make it in a 9x13- baking dish.
This recipe makes only 3 cups and it goes so fast. Keep plenty of crackers, pita chips and party rye toast on hand.
This is great stuffed in celery sticks or avocado halves.
Or bake in Bell peppers, tomatoes or zucchini boats.
