  • 12 oz crab meat
  • 4 oz cream cheese softened
  • ¼ cup mayo
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • 4 oz can diced green chilis
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 Tbs fresh chives chopped
  • 1 Tbs worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 3/4 cup Parmesan save ¼ cup to sprinkle on top
  • 3/4 cup cheddar cheese save ¼ cup to sprinkle on top


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a medium sized bowl, mix together crab meat, cream cheese, may, sour cream, diced green chilis, and lemon juice. Stir well.
  • Pour in worcestershire sauce and fresh chives.
  • Gather your spices and add in Old Bay seasoning and paprika, as well as your parmesan and cheddar cheese. Make sure you set aside ½ cup of each cheese.
  • Place mixture inside of an 8x8 pan and smooth out surface. Sprinkle on parmesan and cheddar cheese.
  • Bake for 18-20 minutes or until bubbling. If the cheese isn’t melted or you want to brown it a little bit, feel free to broil for a couple of minutes. Make sure you keep an eye on the dip since it can burn easily under the broiler.
  • Garnish with fresh chives and eat with tortillas or crackers.
