Chipotle Crab Dip


Can you believe it's Labor Day? Summer went by too fast, as usual. Some people, namely football fans, are ready for fall. The football season is upon us. And with it, the need for yummy snacks to enjoy while watching the game. This baked crab dip is just what you need! It's so fast and easy to make, you can probably whip it up during the first commercial break. This creamy, savory dip is perfect with tortilla chips and veggies. You might find yourself hoping the game goes into overtime so you can enjoy more of this dip!

In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese, yogurt and chipotle mayo.


Kraft makes the chipotle mayo, but if you don't have it, just use regular mayo and add some of your favorite seasoning - chili powder, cayenne, or a taco seasoning mix would all be good.

Give it a good stir then add the crab,


Worcestershire sauce


and green onions.


Gently fold the crab and onions into the cream cheese mixture, then transfer to individual ramekins or into a small baking dish.


Bake for 15-20 minutes or until bubbly.
