And I am a firm believer these days of using dips for more than just dips… more like dumps. Like, pile your fries high and dump the toppings on. Picture a fries nachos kind of thing. Mmmmm!
That is exactly what I did with this crabby dip I made. The picture is more beautiful as a dip, but trust me, you’ll want to dump instead. That way each and every bit of your Alexia fries will be loaded down with flaky crab meat and buttery onions and peppers. This tastes so good you’ll want to just shovel it in, which is completely appropriate when you have a fry as a vehicle!
This dip / dump works well with the Alexia House Cut Fries with Sea Salt that I used, but I imagine would also be pretty incredible with Alexia Seasoned Waffle Cut Fries or even the Alexia Sweet Potato Crinkle Cut fries. You could even get all kinds of creative and dump the Crabby Dip onto Alexia Sweet Potato Crinkle Cut fries! Mmmmm!
So as you’ve guessed, I prefer this Crabby Dip, dumped, but you can most certainly retain your daintiness by dipping. I also like to dump it / dip it when the dip is still warm. When you are done using the Crabby Dip as a dip, try spreading it on a flour tortilla and rolling it up for a quick lunchtime treat.
Whether you dip or dump, try this crabby dip, with Alexia Fries as your vehicle to enjoy it!
