Crab Rangoon Dip

crab rangoon dip with fried wonton strips

This is a very simple and easy-to-make crab rangoon dip for snacking on and is also a crowd-pleasing appetizer for a cocktail party or for watching that big game. It’s one of my favorite football day snack foods.

It’s best served warm, but you can also eat it cold. I like it better warm because it’s easier to dip or spread the wonton strips with the dip.  The fried wonton strips are made by cutting egg roll wrappers into long strips.  I like to cut them into half sometimes so I can break them up into chips.

I was inspired to make this because my wife and I love crab rangoon and order it every time we get Chinese take-out. The only problem is, that I want the filling in every bite.

Now, I can get as much crab rangoon filling as I want with the dip. This recipe uses canned crab, but you can use any crab meat you like.
