"Serve this creamy cheese and crab spread on crackers, or use it as a dip for breadsticks and veggies. You can also use shrimp instead of the crab. "
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

I really enjoyed this recipe. I just noticed now that you are supposed to put the cocktail sauce on top of the spread. Well, I mixed it right in with everything else and it turned out great. I suggest mixing all the ingredients except the crab (which I fold in at the end) with an electric hand mixer, it gives a nice whipped texture.
Not exactly what I was looking for. I added some shredded cheddar to increase the cheese flavor, but it just didn't do it for me. Not a big hit at the party I took it to, though some people did like it.
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 it was too creamy. It was still good, but it needed some texture.
* 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
* 1 tablespoon lemon juice
* 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
* 2 green onions, finely chopped
* 1 (6 ounce) can crabmeat, drained and flaked
* 1 (8 ounce) jar cocktail sauce
I served this at a family gathering and everyone loved it. Even my "tell me what's in it first" husband loved it and is eating the few bites left over today. I added extra lemon juice, and next time I'll add more hot sauce. I used Rachel's Wasabi Cocktail Sauce, from this website. I think this would be equally good with shrimp.
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 this too far in advance of it's serving because you'll eat it!
I halved the recipe and used a little less lemon juice. I thought it was very good and we used it with crackers and sourdough bread. I thought it needed just a little something extra so next time I'll experiment with either some garlic salt or a hotter hot sauce.
Great combination - I did plus up the tabasco sauce though to 1 Tablespoon and used the green tabasco sauce instead.
Way too much cocktail sause, it completely over powers the flavor of anything else. Not enough crab. Will not make again.
