I have made this several times, and I always get asked for the recipe. It is one of my own original recipes.

Served with crackers, this crab and roasted red pepper spread will be a great addition to your next get-together. Using canned crab makes a thrifty and easy snack. The sweet roasted red peppers are in every bite and add some texture. There's a bit of a kick from the tabasco that we loved. If you don't like things spicy, cut back on that a bit.
