I like to have “theme” food when it’s my turn for our monthly book club. After reading Elizabeth Allende’s “Daughter of Fortune”, I was inspired to tweak my traditional crab dip with my own Hispanic twist. Please note that a little extra nip of the tequila will add much more flavor to your dip!
6 oz. Cream Cheese
4 oz. Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
1/4 cup Sour Cream
1 cup Shredded Parmesan Cheese
2 Tbsp. Tequila (add one for good measure!)
1-2 Chopped Pickled Jalapenos
1 tsp. Chili Powder
1.2 tsp. Cumin
8 oz. Crabmeat
1/2 cup Chopped Artichoke Hearts
2-3 cups Chopped Green Onions
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all of the ingredients together in a large bowl. Place ingredients in a small casserole dish. Sprinkle with paprika. Bake 20 minutes or until bubbly. Serve with tortilla chips.
