Warm Crab Dip with  Chardonnay Spice Blend

 

Affordable yet elegant and so easy to make, this Warm Crab Dip showcasing our Spice Pairing for Chardonnay will get raves reviews from friends and family. 
Using canned crabmeat from your pantry (or fresh if your pocketbook allows for a little splurge,) this luscious crock-style dip is a combination of olive oil mayo & cream cheese with sautéed onion and diced mini sweet peppers. Heated until bubbly and lightly browned, it’s a perfect topper for toasted crostini or pita crackers. 
For a whole different presentation, cut more of the mini sweet peppers in half and fill with the uncooked crab mixture. Place them on a parchment paper coated cookie sheet and bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes or until the crab mixture is thoroughly. Serve while warm.
