This Cheesy Maryland Hot Crab Dip makes the perfect party appetizer. Cream cheese is seasoned with Old bay seasoning, sour cream and mayo to give it a rich & creamy texture, and two kinds of cheeses. A little jalapeno gives it just the right amount of spice and balances out the creaminess.
I love serving this to my family and friends. It’s one of those dishes that everyone loves and is convenient, for keto and non keto guests. It’s decadent and cheesy, but at the same time elegant enough for a cocktail party. I love serving it with crusty bread, crackers, fresh vegetables, cheese crisps, and keto crackers, so I can enjoy as well. you can find the recipe for my easy keto crackers here https://ketowithmona.com/2020/11/18/keto-low-carb-gluten-free-crackers/
