Whenever I make this Crab Rangoon Dip recipe for a party, people can’t help but hover around the snack table dipping crispy wonton chips into the creamy, cheesy crab dip. (Okay, to tell you the truth, I do the same thing. It’s so good!) I have a lot of baked dips in my repertoire for party snacks, but this might just be one of my favorites—and I guarantee, if you make it, everyone will ask you for the recipe!

Easy Crab Rangoon Dip Recipe

There’s something completely irresistible about a piping hot creamy dip for a winter get-together with friends and family, and since there are a lot of holiday celebrations over the next few months, I thought it was about time I shared my Crab Rangoon Dip recipe here! 

If you’ve ever ordered crab rangoon as a starter at a Chinese restaurant, you probably have a good idea of what this dip tastes like. It’s basically a deconstructed version of the appetizer, with homemade wonton chips used for dipping instead of filling. But don’t worry, if you’re short on time, you can use pita chips instead of making your own chips and it’s just as good!

ingredients to make crab rangoon dip

Ingredients

  • Wonton wrappers – You’ll need to cut them into 2 triangles per sheet.
  • Cream cheese – Soften the cream cheese a bit so it’s easy to stir in the other ingredients.
  • Sour cream
  • Mayonnaise 
  • Shredded Monterey Jack
  • Low-sodium soy sauce
  • Garlic powder
  • Lump crab – You can use real crab or imitation.
  • Green onions

How to Make Crab Rangoon Dip

1. Prepare

Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.

2. Make the Chips

Place the wonton triangles on the prepared baking sheet and spray the tops with cooking spray. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes, or until they’re golden brown and crispy. 

3. Make the Dip

In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, sour cream, soy sauce, and garlic powder until smooth. Fold in the crab, ½ cup of the cheese, and the green onions. 

4. Bake

Transfer the dip to a small baking dish and sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the dip is bubbly and the top is golden.

5. Garnish and Serve

Garnish with additional green onions and drizzle with Sriracha, if desired. Serve with the wonton chips or pita chips.

    What do you do with the Mayonnaise? The ingredients have Mayo, but not in the instructions.
    And to be clear. You spray the wontons with cooking spray ? Like Avacado Spray?
