OK, this isn't my recipe, it's my friend Bob's. It's always been a hit at parties. Thanks, Bob!
8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
1 6 oz can crabmeat
½ cup mayo
2 minced scallions
1 teaspoon Worchestershire
½ teaspoon Tabasco
¼ teaspoon chili powder
Mix all except chili powder in an ovenproof bowl. Sprinkle chili powder on top, bake 20 minutes at 400. Serve hot, with bread or crackers.
A can of crabmeat is about $3, and a block of cream cheese is about $1.50, maybe a little less. The rest you should have in your pantry. This goes a long way, so you can splurge on the good crackers.
