How To Make Crab Rangoon Dip
- Start by mixing the cream cheese and sour cream together until they are smooth and nicely blended.
- Then add in all of the remaining ingredients and mix until everything is well combined.
- Here you can put into a small crock pot and heat on low for a couple hours. Or put in an oven safe dish and bake until hot and bubbly.
You can use canned lump meat crab to make this, or you can get the fresh stuff from fish counter. The imitation stuff will work, but definitely not be quite as tasty. But can you ever really go wrong with a dip you get to dip fried egg roll wrappers in?
