Crab Dip Cooking Directions:

We weren’t kidding when we said this was an easy crab dip recipe…

The only thing standing between you and this exquisite crab dip are the five simple steps below:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix sour cream, cream cheese, mayo and butter. The mixture should be a smooth consistency.
  3. Add paprika, salt, cayenne pepper, and Old Bay seasoning.
  4. Add green pepper, crabmeat, mozza cheese, onions and jalapenos, stirring until smooth.
  5. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes. The dip will appear bubbly when it’s ready.

If you don’t like spice, feel free to omit the cayenne pepper and jalapenos. Another idea for this recipe is to replace the minced onion with onion powder. This makes the food prep even simpler and adds a nice flavor.
