Hot Crab Dip {Keto}

How to make crab dip

All you need to do for this quick easy crab dip is melt everything together over medium-low heat. Seriously, that’s it! You’ll have Start with the butter and cheese. No need to cut up the Velveeta unless it’s been in the refrigerator.

Once the butter and cheese are completely melted, add the rest of the ingredients and stir until creamy and heated through

Serve this easy hot crab dip warm, but not piping hot. Allowing the dip to cool a little before serving will create a thicker texture more conducive to dipping. Serve with tortilla chips, Fritos, or as a fondue!

It’s so delicious, you’ll probably wish you had a hot cheesy crab dip fountain, but fondue is the next best thing. If you enjoyed this easy hot crab dip recipe, try my Death by Spinach Dip too!
