A co-worker brought an extra dish of this into the office a few months back and I talked her into giving me the recipe. Now I am sharing it with you with a few changes of my own.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This is a classic crab appetizer that can be used for any occasion. It is rich and creamy. Parmesan cheese adds flavor and makes the dip savory. Full of sweet crab meat and chunks of artichokes, serve as a fantastic New Year's Eve or holiday appetizer. But this crab-artichoke dip would also be fun for a tailgate. We served with pita chips, but tortilla chips or crackers would also be a delicious choice.

How To Make

Test Kitchen Tips
If you're not a big fan of dill, cut back a little on your measurement. It will still be delish but without a heavy dill flavor. We used a 3 quart baking dish.
