This Roasted Corn and Pepper Crab Dip recipe is so good and so easy. Definitely a crowd pleaser.
I really love crab! Even though, sometimes it’s hard for me to find ways how to prepare it. I think that when it’s not cooked in the right way, you know using the right combination of ingredients and spices, it may have a slightly weird taste. But this Roasted Corn and Pepper Crab Dip recipe is perfect!
Not to sound bossy at all … but You. Have.To.Try.This.Soon!
Oh my! The tender crab meat, the spicy melted cheese, and the roasted veggies make a mouthwatering combination. I could really eat the whole thing myself.
When I prepared this dish I had the Soccer World Cup on the mind, you know, trying to follow my husband’s instructions about the food I can and cannot serve during the games. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, consult the survival guide to a world cup. This recipe got two-thumbs-up for
his majesty Mr. Picky my husband, and from all the other tasters.
If you have some leftovers, which I doubt, the next day put it on a slice of bread, if you want you can put a little more cheese on top, and bake it until hot and cheese is melted.
