Not exactly what I was looking for. I added some shredded cheddar to increase the cheese flavor, but it just didn't do it for me. Not a big hit at the party I took it to, though some people did ...

Since I love crab meat, I doubled the amount of meat and skipped the cocktail sauce. I would recommend using lump crab meat or the fake crab meat. I mixed everything in the food processor, and...

Great combination - I did plus up the tabasco sauce though to 1 Tablespoon and used the green tabasco sauce instead.

Way too much cocktail sause, it completely over powers the flavor of anything else. Not enough crab. Will not make again.

Well, I admit that I messed up and just put some of the cocktail sauce IN the recipe - but overall it's a good, easy, basic crab dip. :)
