Crab Rangoon Dip with Crispy Won Ton Chips
Crab Rangoon Dip with Crispy Won Ton Chips is the dip recipe I whip out when I’m feeling a craving for crab rangoon and actually feel like sharing with others. The creamy, crab-packed dip makes for an easy dish to serve guests or bring to a potluck.
ONLY TWO MORE DAYS. Can you tell I am WAY too excited for the Super Bowl?!
I can barely focus on anything else right now, you guys. It’s bad.
Ok, let’s focus on food for just a second, shall we? This crab dip.
Oh lordy, I am losing my mind over it.
Crab rangoon is one of my all-time favorite things to order when I’m getting Chinese food.
Whenever the Man and I are talking about ordering Chinese, it’s the one thing that’s always on the list. Because DUH, it’s amazing.
I am pretty sure this stems from an early and consistent introduction to them as a child by my parents.
They are both obsessed with crab wontons and passed that obsession straight down to me. I seriously love them so so much.
There’s not an order of takeout Chinese that goes without a set of those delicious little nuggets of awesome in my house, that’s for dang sure.
What’s not to love though? Fried, creamy, and full of luscious crab.
Instead of trying to make individual crab-filled wontons – let’s face it, my passion wears thin sometimes and I just want to CRAB – I flipped it inside-out to create this epic dip.
Pretty dang awesome, am I right?
It’s warm, gooey and tastes like the best crab rangoon you’ve ever eaten, all piled high on a crispy baked won ton chip.
I’ll give you a moment to pick your jaws up off the floor…
This dip has all the flavor of those crab rangoon wontons that you love to devour whenever you go out for Asian food!
It’s infinitely easier to make and it is seriously addictive.
The creamy crab goodness is packed with indulgent flavor, and the homemade crispy wontons are the perfect vehicle for shoveling all of it into your mouth!
Are you hungry yet?
I might have had a few nights of hoarding this dip to myself as I binged on Netflix, glass of Chardonnay in hand…
Why yes, I think I will watch How I Met Your Mother for the zillionth time while overindulging in cheesy, crab goodness.
And no, I will NOT be judged for it.
Mmkay thanks bye.

this recipe’s must-have’s
I love using these mixing bowls and usually use at least one of them once a day. They are great for all the mixing you ever need!
A half sheet baking pan is all you need to bake up the crunchy chips.
I used a Le Creuset Signature Oval Baker for this dip, because it’s great for baking in, but also for serving! Looks great in the dish on the table 🙂
