This creamy, cheesy dip was inspired by the beloved Chinese American restaurant appetizer crab Rangoon. We opted for lump crab instead of imitation, which adds a hint of sweetness, and jalapeño gives it a touch of heat. We suggest you scoop it up with wonton chips for the complete experience, but tortilla chips and crudités are also delicious with it.

Hot Crab Dip

1 (8 ounce) package reduced-fat cream cheese, softened

⅔ cup shredded extra-sharp Cheddar cheese

8 ounces lump crabmeat, drained and picked over

1 medium jalapeño, finely chopped

Preheat oven to 350°F. Beat cream cheese, Cheddar, sour cream and soy sauce in a large bowl with an electric mixer.

Using a wooden spoon, stir in crab, jalapeño and garlic. Set aside 2 tablespoons scallions; stir the remaining scallions into the mixture. Transfer the mixture to a pie pan.

Bake until hot and bubbling around the edges, about 20 minutes. Sprinkle with the reserved scallions.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
