Never underestimate the power of a great dip to get a party off to a cheery start.
Cajun Hot Crab Dip
Spoon this dip into a baking dish up to a day ahead, but top with panko and chives just before baking. If it's chilled, leave the dish out at room temperature while the oven preheats. Scoop into multiple bowls that you can set at different tasting stations.
