Chilled Crab Dip


"Hot crab dips don't stay yummy for long. This chilled dip tastes better longer. Put it over ice and it'll stay cold for hours." —David

Tip: If you prefer to serve this dip hot, add 1 cup of shredded Colby Jack cheese to the ingredients and spoon the mixture into a 9" x 13" baking dish. Sprinkle 4 ounces of crushed butter crackers on top and bake at 350°F for 25–30 minutes.
