This dip was fantastic! I added a little extra cream cheese (about 1/3 of a stick) and about a 1/2 tsp more cajun seasoning for a little extra kick and it was delicious! The dip was only out 10 minutes before it was all gone!

In Louisiana, February means two things: Mardi Gras and crawfish. Two-thirds of all mudbugs are harvested this month. Most locals start with a boil (corn, sausage, and potatoes), but what's left goes into crawfish pie, and luscious appetizer dips.
