Key Ingredients for this Recipe

Crab Meat

I recommend using high quality fresh crab meat versus imitation crab meat, which can be found in the refrigerated seafood section in your local grocery store. Real crab meat is pricier, but will make your dip taste that much better!

Silver Spring Foods Prepared Horseradish

Silver Spring Foods, the world’s largest grower and processor of horseradish, offers a variety of horseradish products, sauces and specialty mustards, including their classic Prepared Horseradish! It adds a delicious Zing to this savory dip!

Ketchup

Ketchup is combined with the Silver Spring Foods Prepared Horseradish to create a cocktail sauce, which makes this crab rangoon dip so unique!

Cheese

I used an Italian cheese blend of parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese and romano. You can find this in the dairy aisle at the grocery store pre-blended, or you could shred your own.

Cream Cheese

A cream cheese base makes dips extra creamy and easy to scoop without breaking your chips and crackers

Worcestershire sauce

Adding worcestershire sauce to this dip is an easy way to add deep flavor to uncooked sauces

Mayonnaise

The tangy flavor, and the creamy texture of mayo is the perfect addition to this cheesy crab rangoon dip.

Sour Cream

The combination of sour cream, mayonnaise and cream cheese makes the perfect consistency to any dip!

Lemon Juice

Freshly squeezed lemon juice adds a bright freshness to this dip! You can use bottled lemon juice if fresh isn’t available

Other Ingredients

Green onions- chopped scallions or green onions are optional, but make a great garnish on top of the dip!

Garlic – fresh garlic is best, you may substitute 1/8 of a teaspoon of garlic powder if fresh isn’t available.

Step By Step Instructions To Make This Creamy Crab Dip

step by step process of making crab rangoon dip

Mix together cream cheese, sour cream and mayo with a hand mixer until light and fluffy.

Combine Silver Springs Foods Prepared Horseradish and ketchup to create a cocktail sauce. Add it to the cream cheese mixture and mix well. Add lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce and garlic and continue to mix.

Add the lump crab meat to the same bowl. Stir to combine but don’t overmix so the dip will still have nice chunks of crab right in it.

Add 1/2 of the cheese and gently fold until combined.

Spoon dip from the mixing bowl into a baking dish and smooth the dip out to the edges of the dish. Top with remaining cheese.

Bake at 375 for 25 minutes, covering the first 20 minutes with foil. Remove the foil for the last 5 minutes and bake until bubbly and the cheese on top has melted.
