Since I love crab meat, I doubled the amount of meat and skipped the cocktail sauce. I would recommend using lump crab meat or the fake crab meat. I mixed everything in the food processor, and...

Oh my Gawd! This is absolutely wonderful. I'll admit I was skeptic with the hot sauce but it's wonderful. You just want to keep eating it. Great aftertaste. I would advise you not to make t...

Great combination - I did plus up the tabasco sauce though to 1 Tablespoon and used the green tabasco sauce instead.
