Chesapeake Bay Crab Dip Recipe

This Chesapeake Bay Crab Dip recipe was passed along to me from a local seafood restaurant and over the years I have added several ingredients.  We are lucky to live close to the Chesapeake Bay and there is always fresh lump crab meat in the grocery stores year-round.

The Old Bay & the hot sauce are my secret ingredients, making this the best hot crab dip ever!  I make this every year for Christmas and it is always a hit!
