Wow, I forgot how much I love crab. It has been awhile since I have made any crab dip. Of course, this ended up being my dinner tonight cause I couldn't stop eating it. hehe Now, I didn't eat it all and I made 1/2 of the recipe so I will be able to munch on this for a couple of days at least. lol I don't know what I love better the horseradish & chili sauce when I dip in or the mix of cream cheese with it all? This was my first time to try the Louisiana Hot Sauce as I usually use Frank's Hot sauce but I had been hearing about how delish it is, so I had to buy a bottle. Wow, it is delish.
