Hot Crab Dip with Stubb’s Sweet Heat Bar-B-Q Sauce


1 cup sour cream
1 cup cream cheese, softened to room temperature
1/2 cup Stubb’s Sweet Heat Bar-B-Q Sauce, or more to taste
1/2 medium white or yellow onion, diced
1 large celery stick, diced
3 scallions, sliced, plus more for garnish
1 cup cooked crab meat, lump or claw meat (canned or in refrigerated seafood section)
1 cup shredded Parmesan or Cheddar cheese, plus 1/4 cup for topping
Salt and pepper to taste
Crackers or chips for serving



Preheat oven to 350° degrees.

Mix together all ingredients in a large bowl (except extra cheese) to combine. Season to taste, adding more sauce, salt and pepper if needed.

Pour the mixture into a medium-sized baking dish (8×8 inch square or similar) and bake for 30 minutes or until hot and bubbling. Top with extra cheese and return to oven for 5 minutes to allow the cheese to melt.

Let cool down for a few minutes before serving. Serve with crackers or tortilla chips.

*Note this dip can also be mixed and served cold or at room temperature without baking first.
