Jalapeno Crab Dip

As I have mentioned before, I love dips, all kinds of dips. I think they are the perfect appetizer for parties, they are easy to make and can feed several people. With the holiday season upon us I set out to create a new dip. I came up with this spicy, creamy crab dip that is served chilled.The trick is to let it chill for about an hour or two to let the flavors meld.  I served it with crackers, Tasty Little Crackers Original 7-Grain to be exact, but it would also work well on raw vegetables, or maybe even some toasted sour dough.
