Warm Jalapeno Crab Dip - Ahhhhhhh

Warm Jalapeno Crab Dip

Did some say Jalapeno and Crab? I love both of these. This sounds amazing, I love warm dips and especially one with these two ingredients in them. Found this over at Ladies Home Journal and of course it caught my attention right away. So excited to share this with you.


·         tablespoons unsalted butter
·         garlic clove, minced
·         1/4 cup all-purpose flour
·         1 1/4 cups milk
·         8 ounce container fresh lump crab meat, picked over, cartilage discarded
·         1 1/4 cups shredded sharp white cheddar
·         teaspoon fresh lemon juice
·         scallions, thinly sliced
·         jalapeno chile's, seeds removed, finely chopped


Heat oven to 400 degrees F. In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium-high heat and add garlic. Cook, stirring, until just fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in flour and slowly whisk in milk. Cook, stirring constantly, until thickened, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in crab, 3/4 cup cheese and the juice. Reserve 2 tablespoons scallion and 1 tablespoon jalapeno; stir remaining scallion and jalapeno into crab mixture. Transfer to a 1-quart baking dish and top with remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Bake until heated through, about 20 minutes. Broil 6 inches from heat until golden and bubbly, 6 to 8 minutes. Sprinkle with reserved scallion and jalapeno. Serve warm. Makes 2-1/4 cups.

Enjoy this amazing treat on this amazing Spring Day. I am off with my family for Spring Break but will have my computer so check back tomorrow! Thanks as always for stopping by and for all the support you give the Riches to Rags by Dori.
