Since most of us will be watching the game at home with those closest to us, a few tasty app should do the trick! I have a fabulous recipe that is sure to make your family very happy!

It’s just not game day without a batch of jalapeño poppers. Cheese stuffed peppers are fantastic…but when you add some crab to the mix and wrap that pepper in a little bacon, you have a something that’s amazing!

This recipe is just an offshoot of my Creamy Crap Dip. I have made the basic dip numerous times over the years and it’s always a big hit. One year, I served it at a gathering aside a batch of jalapeño poppers and a friend commented that I should combine the two recipes for the perfect appetizer. So I did!

The first step is to prep your peppers. Just cut them in half and remove the seeds and membrane and place on a sheet pan. Next it’s time to make your crab dip.

The crab dip is simple to make. You just combine all the ingredients in a bowl and it’s ready to go! You could pop it in a casserole dish and bake it up and serve with some dippers. I don’t think anyone would complain.

But, when you stuff that dip in the peppers with the bacon, it really does take the recipe to another level.

Notice that you don’t need a ton of ingredients. I like to use lump crab from the Publix seafood department. It can be a little pricey so if you want to cut costs, you can use a canned crab. I have used both and the recipe is really good with either.

I’ll even save you a little more moolah as we have a Hellmann’s coupon that you can use to save $2 at Publix. Load the digital coupon and you’ll save big on Hellmann’s Mayonnaise for this recipe AND all your other faves!
