Crabmeat Dip

A few months ago, I made a crab dip from a cookbook I bought while on vacation in the Outer Banks.  It was an easy recipe that was enjoyed by everyone.  I unearthed the recipe yesterday and made it for the Chicken and Beer dance.

The Chicken and Beer dance is an event that is put on by the Community Hall trustees- it is a local event that has been going on for years.  The chicken, beer, and music is provided, and people bring their own sides.

We had a good time dancing and hanging out with friends.  It is nice to have a night out with adults and no kids every once in a while.

Crabmeat Dip from A Taste of the Outer Banks

3 oz. package cream cheese softened
1/2 cup mayonaise
2/3 cup tomato soup, undiluted
1/2 pound crabmeat, cooked
1 clove garlic, minced
Dash of salt
Dash of pepper
Tabasco (optional)

Stir in mayonaise and tomato soup into softened cream cheese and blend well.  Mix in crabmeat, garlic, salt, pepper and Tabasco.  Serve with crackers, vegetables, or chips

I like to let the dip sit in the fridge for a while - let the flavors combine.  The soup really adds a creamy texture and great flavor.  Try it next time you are in a pickle for what to make!
