Directions

  1. Process celery, green onions, and crab in a food processor until finely chopped, about 30 seconds. Sprinkle gelatin over cold water in a small bowl; let stand until softened, about 10 minutes.
  2. Bring chicken soup to a simmer in a saucepan over medium-low heat; stir gelatin mixture into soup, dissolving completely. Remove from heat and cool until slightly warm. Stir cream cheese and mayonnaise into soup mixture until smooth; stir Worcestershire sauce and hot sauce into soup mixture.
  3. Pour soup mixture into food processor with crab mixture and process until smooth, about 1 minute. Pour into a 5-cup mold. Chill in refrigerator until set, about 4 hours.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • I use a 5-cup mold that has separate lids for each major holiday. For Christmas it is a tree, so I lightly spray the lid with cooking spray and lightly sprinkle it with paprika before I pour the mixture into the mold. Then when I remove the mold it has a red tree on the top of it.

Very,very good. I like spice, so I use a little more hot sauce. Great to take to a party or a dinner. I like the idea for decorating the top.

This is good. Best on saltines. Next time I might add 1 more can of crab meat for more crab flavor.

Just made this for Christmas '13. The family and friends loved it. It makes a good amount for a party. If you want to get wild, add a little minced garlic :) Thanks for the recipe. This would double really well as a filling for mushrooms or maybe even some breakfast crepes or omelette.
