Reviews forFiesta Crab Dip
"This recipe was fantastic! I took the dip to a party and everyone raved about it. I did substitute my home-canned salsa for the picante sauce which worked just fine. I will definitely be making this again!"
"I goofed and put a whole tomato in the dip and didn't have green onions. It was ok but needs something extra for some kick."
"Made a half portion for four people and it was plenty. Very good and will make again."
"Always a winner! I make this regularly and my friends all love it and request the recipe!"
