Winston's Crab Dip

If you're from Raleigh, you know Winston's Grille is a staple. What you might also know is they have the best crap dip ever! One bite and nothing compares. I recently hosted happy hour with a few friends and decided to take a stab at recreating their dip. In full disclosure, it wasn't an exact replicate, but it was pretty darn good and enjoyed by all. I added extra hot sauce and horseradish to mine, and I was so happy with how this appetizer turned out. I served mine with pita chips, but I also recommend serving with toasted baguette slices! This recipe is tasty and easy to whip up at home ... especially prefect for entertaining during this holiday week. Enjoy!
