Creamy crab dip tops the lime-flavored chips perfectly. These would be popular at a party, so it's a good thing they make a lot. --Tracey Stone, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

If you just accidently stumbled across this recipe, don?t keep clicking away! This is one you definitely have to try tonight! I made it today for my two picky younger ones, and they loved it! The youngest finished off her whole plate, which is such a rarity! Not only is this simple recipe delicious, but my eldest also helped make the dip on top while my youngest cut out the fun star shapes with a cookie cutter. I hope to inspire my kids to have a passion for culinary arts, and this recipe was fun and tasty enough for the entire family to enjoy. Please try it tonight, you will not be let down, I guarantee!
