Horseradish Crab Dip Recipe

I depend on this mildly seasoned crab dip when hosting parties. It's a terrific time-saver when accompanied by celery sticks or your favorite raw veggie. It's so simple to prepare that it gives me time to get other appetizers ready or mingle with guests.

  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons picante sauce
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
