How To Make creamy crab dip

  • 1
    Put the shallots, jalapeno and red bell pepper into a non-stick skillet. Cook for about 5 minutes on medium heat, just until they are lightly softened. Then place everything except the bread crumbs into a mixing bowl and mix to combine making sure everything is incorporated.

    Put everything into a baking dish and bake in a 350 degree oven for about 25 minutes or until everything is nice and bubbly.
