Directions

  1. In a mixing bowl or food processor, blend cream cheese, mayonnaise, garlic, basil, onion powder, salt, horseradish and Tabasco sauce until creamy. Drain and rinse the crabmeat. Add remaining ingredients and hand stir (do not process) until combined. You want the garnish to be crunchy and visible.
  2. Heat in the microwave for approximately 2-3 minutes until bubbly around the edges. If the cheese is not melted enough, microwave for another minute.
  3. Serve with your favourite crackers, slices of baguette or sliced raw vegetables.
