Crab Rangoon Dip Recipe

Crab Rangoon Dip is a delicious way to get a quick seafood fix without much preparation. Where we live it is hard to find fresh crab meat, so it was perfect that this recipe calls for the canned. Due to an MSG allergy,  I don’t go to Chinese restaurants, which happen to be about the only place to get Crab Rangoon in the Midwest.  This was a totally new taste for me, and a fantastic dip to create from home.
