Spicy Cold Crab Dip
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: about 12 servings
  • 2½ cups lump crab meat (the real deal or imitation-- your preference)
  • 1 lemon
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt (or sea salt!!!)
  • ¼ teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (if you don't like too much heat split the peppers open and scrape out the seeds)
  • ½ cup shredded sharp white cheddar cheese
  • ¼ cup low fat sour cream
  • ¼ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup chopped green onions
  • veggies, crackers, chips, and pretzels for serving
  1. In a medium bowl break up the crab meat a little bit with your fingers. Cut the lemon in half and squeeze the juice over the crab meat, being careful not to get any seeds in the bowl.
  2. Toss the crab meat with the salt, Old Bay, and garlic powder. Stir in the chopped chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. Then stir in the sour cream and Greek yogurt. Add the cheese and chopped green onions.
  3. You can stir the dip with a fork, breaking the pieces of crab meat as you go for a chunky dip. I threw my dip in the blender at this point to give it a thicker, smoother texture-- also it spreads easily. This step is optional based on your texture preferences.
