Makeover Hot Crab Dip Recipe

"I lightened up a recipe for traditional crab dip with reduced-fat and fat-free sour cream and cheeses," notes Cammy Brittingham from Cambridge, Maryland. "Feel free to experiment with different cheeses to suit your tastes. This is great for a party because you can make it a day ahead and refrigerate it.

"This is really good but I used fresh black fin crabmeat from the seafood section of my grocery store. I'm amazed that someone from Cambridge would use imitation or canned crabmeat. hailing from Tappe, I only use the real thing!!!"
