This is a specialty of caterer Kay Queveda. It’s a combination of pickled jalapenos, artichoke hearts and sweet crabmeat in a luscious base of melted cream cheese and sour cream. It’s a different way of thinking about chile con queso and it’s so easy and so deliciously habit forming. Pita triangles are preferred, but you can use sturdy tostaditas, too. This is a thick chunky dip, so make sure you use a sturdy tostadita.
