  • Very Good

    I doubled the recipe for a holiday party but I had to add a few things: 1/4 cup dry sherry, about 3 more tsp of Creole, 1-2tsp of Cayenne pepper, 1-2tsp of cracked pepper, and about 1/8th of Grand Marnier. Loved it! My husband likes it more chunky so next time i might reserve some meat. - 11/29/09

  • I also made this for a party and had to add to it for flavor. 2 oz cream cheese and a small can of lump crab meat along with the suggestions below make it good. Too expensive for "Very Good." - 5/8/11
