The Super Bowl XLVII is tomorrow and for many TV viewers, it is all about the food and the commercials. Here is my favorite dip recipe that will definitely be a touchdown at any game party. It has been passed around and tweaked since the day I begged for it over 25 years ago. This time I added Cajun spices in a tribute to The Big Easy (New Orleans) hosting the big game.
Cajun is considered a bold mixture of paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, cayenne pepper, oregano and thyme. Make it or buy it; it will definitely tackle your taste buds.
Rajin’ Cajun Seafood Dip
Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees
Lightly grease the bottom and sides of a large casserole dish with butter or margarine.
In a large mixer bowl blend together the following:
3 cups of Hellman’s mayonnaise
2 cups of sour cream
2 pounds of sharp cheddar cheese
1 1/2 pounds of imitation crab or crawfish (to be in the NOLA mood)
Sprinkle Cajun spice or Old Bay Seasoning to suit your “hot” meter.
Spread out the thick mixture into the large casserole dish and bake for 30 minutes covered with foil.
Remove the foil and bake for 10 minutes or until golden on top.
Serve with Ritz crackers and be prepared to pass out copies of the recipe.
