Hot Mexican Crab Dip

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.
