Blue Crab Cheese Dip

Submitted by: ONEOFAKIND864

Introduction

Nothing beats this hot dip as a crowd pleaser on a cold winter night. Set up near fireplace- even on the hearth- and you won't even have a crumb left! It has all the texture and taste of the regular dip with a fraction of the calories. Double this and freeze the second portion to use later!

Ingredients

    ~1 cup real blue crab pieces, throughly picked over for shell remnants.
    ~.5 cup low fat cream cheese( don't use the fat free kind f you'll have a gummy mess instead of a cheese dip!)
    ~.25 cup light mayo(you can also sub grapeseed or canola mayos with great results!)
    ~.5 cup fat free small curd cottage cheese
    ~.25 cups low fat or reduced fat extra sharp cheddar cheese- shredded
    ~1 teas worcestershire sauce(or more to taste- but it gives dip a dirty look if you use too much)
    ~1 teas hot pepper sauce(or more to taste)
    ~.25 cups green onions finely chopped
    ~180 grams "Lays" baked tostitos tortilla chips- the "scoops" kind(this is a little more than half a bag)

Directions

In a medium mixing bowl mix all ingredients EXCEPT chips and green onions.

Place in an oven safe bowl large enough to hold 3 cups. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until hot all the way through and bubbly. ** I also warm the chips in the oven alongside the dip for the last 10 minutes of cook time.

To serve wrap bowl in colorful cloth or towel- to prevent guests from touching and burning themselves- place on a trivet and sprinkle with green onions. Serve warm chips on the side. Makes 6 generous servings.
