LOVED this! I did change one thing though...I had a package of imitation crab on hand that needed used, so I went with that. If this dip was great w/ that, I can only imagine how it would be wit...

This was very interesting. I never had cheese on crabmeat, but I was willing to try it. I liked it and the ladies group I made it for was very happy with it.

Very good. Quick and easy! I used imitation crab and it was fine. I left off the olives because we don't like them. Took it to a party and everyone liked it, we ate it with tortilla chips.
