Easy Crab Dip

Comment on this recipe

"Hint: I put the crab meat in a mesh drainer and rinse with cold water and then squeeze out the water until crabmeat is fairly dry. This seems to take out 'fishy' smell from being in the can and makes the crab meat more 'fluffy'. " Note: "New Boetje's Sea Sauce is great, but any brand will work."

Ingredients

1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese
1 tablespoon milk
1 cup cocktail sauce (see note)
1 can shredded crab meat, rinsed ("I use Chicken of the Sea.")
Triscuits

Instructions

Blend cream cheese and milk until smooth. Spread into pie plate or on serving plate. Top with cocktail sauce. Layer rinsed and drained crab meat on top. Serve with Triscuits.
