Crab Rangoon Dip
This just gets you in the mood for Chinese Food, just to warn you! It's a good dip that travels well. So, if you need something different for your Super Bowl Party, this could be a nice change. My kids also like this dip and it's not spicy so it can be enjoyed by most people. I buy the won ton strips that my local grocery store makes and sells by their Chinese Express restaurant/Deli section of the store and they work well (however, if you make your own, they're bigger and better for dipping). If if you can't find those, I have included the recipe to make your own. Also, add anything that you might think will make it taste more like your favorite Crab Rangoon, the recipe is flexible. Enjoy!
8 oz block of cream cheese
2 TBS milk
1/4 tsp garlic powder
6 oz. imitation crab meat
1/4 cup sliced green onions (keep chive tops for topping)
1 tsp dried parsley
1/4 cup sweet and source sauce
1 package won ton wrappers
Parmesan cheese (just a sprinkle)
Soften cream cheese in microwave (approx. 15-20 sec). Stir in rest of ingredients besides wrappers, chives and Parmesan. Spread in serving bowl that is oven safe and sprinkle with Parmesan (or you can microwave it). Bake for 10-15 minutes until warm, not too long. Remove from oven, top with chives and serve.
If making your own won ton strips, cut each wrapper in half and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Bake at 375 degrees for 5-7 minutes or until slightly brown.
Or, another version is to pre-bake won ton wrappers in muffin tin, leave them in there and fill with dip and bake to warm up. Top with chives.
