Keto Cheesy Maryland Hot Crab Dip

KETO CHEESY MARYLAND HOT CRAB DIP. You’re in for a treat today because it makes the perfect party appetizer. To give it a rich & creamy texture, and two kinds of cheeses, cream cheese is seasoned with Old bay seasoning, sour cream and mayo. Just the right amount of spice is given by a little jalapeno and it balances out the creaminess.

To my family and friends, I love serving this. For keto and non keto guests, it’s one of those dishes that is convenient and everyone loves. It’s decadent and cheesy, but at the same time for a cocktail party, it’s elegant enough. I love serving it with keto crackers, crackers, fresh vegetables, cheese crisps, and crusty bread, so I can enjoy as well.
