So good and addictive. It's been referred to as "Crack Dip."

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Sweet lump crab meat is the star ingredient in this hot crab dip recipe. It's creamy, cheesy, and delicious. The seasoning is just enough to have a little zing, but not enough to take away from the richness of the dip. This could be a little on the fancy side or served at a very casual event. So good!
