"This easy-fix dip recipe from the Test Kitchen of TOH is the perfect example of why every convenience food is welcome in my pantry/fridge & my slow cooker is my most-valued "kitchen slave". W/little effort, it creates a cheesy combo of tasty seafood flavors that is a departure from most routine party dips & is best served w/garlic-flavored baguette bread slices or pita crisps. ENJOY!"

Step 1

In a greased 3-qt slow cooker, combine the cheese, crab, tomatoes & shrimp. Cover & cook on low for 1-1/2 to 2 hrs or until cheese is melted, stirring occ.

Step 2

TO SERVE: Serve w/choice of (or combo of) garlic-flavored baguette slices &/or pita crisps. (Yield = 5 cups or 20 1/4 cup servings).

Step 3

HINT: To keep condensed water from draining into your dip mixture as you stir, etc - I have found it best to cover my slow cooker w/a kitchen towel & then put the lid in place.

This was so rich and delicious...I found it on the salty side...but everyone else thought it was perfect...very easy to prepare...I cut the recipe in half and used fresh crab instead of the canned...served it with pita chips and garlic crostinis...
