There’s nothing like a delicious hot dip to start the week off right, and since this is a holiday week, and since the holiday is Independence Day, and since Independence Day is traditionally filled with hot stuff like fireworks and bottle rockets, it’s even more appropriate to begin said week with a fantastic hot dip! Your family will love our Texas Gulf Coast Crab Dip. Just set it on the table along with crackers, chips, Fritos, raw veggies, breadsticks, or anything else you think your family might like to dip or spread with Texas Gulf Coast Crab Dip.
1/2 pound lump crabmeat (fake will work, too)
1 8-ounce package of cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup mayonnaise (Miracle Whip just doesn’t work here)
1/4 cup Loco Cheese Dip
3 tablespoons minced onion
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste
What to do:
Preheat your oven to 325.
Combine all of the above ingredients in a large bowl and GENTLY mix. Put mixture in a buttered casserole dish and bake for 35 minutes until lightly golden on top. Serve hot.
You might put the rest of the Loco Cheese Dip on the table with it, in case someone wants a little more kick to his/her portion.
Don’t count on any leftovers; there seldom are leftovers with Texas Pepper Jelly recipes.
P.S. Speaking of hot stuff, please be careful with any fireworks you might want to set off. Most parts of the country are suffering from terrible drought, and you don’t want to start a fire in the dry grass. If your community has cancelled its fireworks display because of the dryness, please don’t put on your own pyrotechnic show and run the risk of irreversible harm to your home and other people’s as well. Stay safe this Fourth of July!
