The Best Hot Crab Dip EVER!


12 ounces lump crab meat
1 teaspoon all-purpose seasoning salt
 ½ teaspoon Worcestershire
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
 ½ lemon, juiced
1 8 ounce package cream cheese softened
 ½ cup mayonnaise
 ½ cup sour cream

 ½ cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
 ½  cup pepper jack cheese
1 tablespoon grated white onion
1 teaspoon of cajun seasoning 
1 tablespoons chopped Italian parsley
 freshly ground black pepper, to taste

In a large bowl add cream cheese, mayonnaise, and sour cream beat until creamy. 

Add remaining ingredients and stir again until well combined.

Serve with baguette slices or tortilla chips.

FUN TIPS for this delicious hot crab dip:

* I highly recommend you purchase fresh lump crab over canned crab meat. You can purchase lump crab in the fresh seafood department at your local market.  

* It may take a little longer, but juice the lemon. 

* If you want the dip spicer add diced jalapenos.
