1 16 oz. can of lump crab meat

1/4 cup of fat free sour cream

1/4 cup of fat free mayo

_Ǭº cup of Miracle Whip

1 tablespoon of finely chopped scallions (green onions) or a tablespoon of red onion if you don’t like scallions

1 teaspoon of dill

2 teaspoons of lemon juice

Several dashes of hot sauce or cayenne pepper to taste (I prefer cayenne pepper)

Ǭ cup of shredded New York Sharp Cheddar

dump all of the ingredients in a bowl (with the exception of the shredded cheddar), and mix. Depending on if you like large chunks of crab or more finely shredded crab meat mixed throughout the dip, you can adjust the texture of the dip by not mixing the ingredients around too much.

Create a layer of shredded cheddar over the top of the dip for a sharp addition that gives even more New York underdog flavor to this chunky and healthy dip. Crab meat is naturally low in fat and is a great representation of Super Bowl favorites New England.

Enjoy the game and the dip!
