This is an easy and delicious spread, and yet another way to use tortillas for an appetizer. The mixture can also be used without the tortillas as a spread on crackers.

I absolutely love this recipie. I have had nothing but compliments on this appetizer. I have made is multiple times and they always go quick. The secret to making them taste great is all in the brand of cocktail sauce and crab meat you use. I have made them with generic cocktail sauce and crab meat and was not to trilled with the taste. Use KRAFT cocktail sauce it's the best. Like I say some imitation crab meat tastes better than others you just have to find a good brand that doesn't taste too fishy and I have found plenty of them. I have also substituted other kinds of cheese and they still taste great. Enjoy! Read More

Awesome!! I served this at a shower. I used 8 oz bag of frozen salad shrimp (defrosted) instead of crab meat b/c I'm skeptical of imitation crab. Omitted the onions b/c not everyone likes them. I got many compliments. Will serve again. Read More

Yummy! Everyone loved these. The best part is that they are so easy to make but look like they were a lot of work. Some thought they were store-bought. Read More

For the most part I think this is pretty good but I am not a fan of cocktail sauce. So I only put half the needed amount. I thought that made a difference. Absolutly worth making again. Enjoy Read More

I wanted to put an Asian twist on these, so I completely left out the cocktail sauce & instead added a couple of dashes of Soy sauce to the cream cheese, added a clove of garlic(pressed) & served w/ Sweet & Sour sauce! You will love this version if you love Crab Rangoon, and it's MUCH healthier! Thanks for a great basic recipe, next time I'll try what the recipe calls for, it sounds delicious either way! Read More

Made these for a picnic yesterday and they were delicious. Prepared too many so a retired teacher (wonderful chef) took home the remainder to serve at his fancy sit-down dinner at home today. Read More
