Ultimate Hot Baltimore Crab Dip

"No party is complete without bubbling, cheesy crab dip. Kick it up a notch with the addition of Frank's RedHot Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce!"

Makes: about 18 servings


1 cup blue crab claw meat
1 cup lump blue crab meat
1 cup cream cheese, at room temperature
3/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup Frank’s® RedHot® Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce
2 1/2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 1/2 tablespoons Chesapeake Bay seasoning
1/2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 shallot, minced
3/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350°F. In a medium bowl, stir together both crab meats, cream cheese, sour cream, Frank’s® RedHot® Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce, mayonnaise, Chesapeake Bay seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, black pepper and shallot until smooth.

Spread the mixture into an 8- x 8-inch baking dish. Sprinkle with the cheddar cheese in an even layer. Bake uncovered until the cheese is melted and the dip is warmed through, about 15 minutes. Serve immediately with crackers, chips or bread.
