Your favorite crab dip
This dip is ridiculously easy but somehow always a crowd pleaser. I serve it with tortilla chips as I think the salt works well with it.
Cream together one can drained crabmeat and 1 block softened cream cheese.
Sprinkle paprika or taco seasoning on top.
Place a pat of butter on top.
Microwave for about 1 min or until warm and bubble.
Mix thoroughly and serve.
ps I usually mix ingredients the day before and nuke it when needed
Here is a cream cheese based recipe that is served hot. The best part is that it calls for a tablespoon of beer so the chef gets to drink the rest.

1 pkg cream cheese, softened
1 tablespoon grated onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon beer
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, hot pepper sauce
Mix all ingredients except parmesan cheese and crab
Gently fold in crab meat
Put into greased oven proof serving dish
Top with Parmesan cheese
Bake until hot. Broil briefly to brown cheese topping
Garnish with parsley and serve with corn chips or stiff crackers
