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

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons grated lime peel
  • 10 flour tortillas (10 inches)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • TOPPING:
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons seafood seasoning, divided
  • 2 cans (6 ounces each) lump crabmeat, drained
  • 6 green onions, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp white cheddar cheese

Directions

In a small bowl, combine salt and lime peel; set aside.
Using a 3-inch star-shaped cookie cutter, cut eight star shapes from each tortilla. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat half of the oil. Fry tortilla stars, a few at a time, until golden brown on both sides. Add more oil as needed. Drain on paper towels; immediately sprinkle with salt mixture.
In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, lime juice and 1 teaspoon seafood seasoning until blended. Fold in crab and onions. Arrange chips on ungreased baking sheets. Top with crab mixture; sprinkle with cheddar cheese.
Broil 3-4 in. from the heat for 1-2 minutes or until cheese is melted. Sprinkle with remaining seafood seasoning. Serve immediately. Yield: 80 appetizers.

"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!"
