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.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter

  • 1 (4-oz.) jar diced pimiento, drained
  • 2 teaspoons Creole seasoning
  • 1 (8-oz.) package cream cheese, softened
  • French bread baguette slices
  • Garnishes: sliced green onion, chopped flat-leaf parsley

Preparation

  1. Melt butter in a Dutch oven over medium heat; add green onions and bell pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 8 minutes or until bell pepper is tender. Stir in crawfish and next 3 ingredients; cook, stirring occasionally, 10 minutes. Reduce heat to low. Stir in cream cheese until mixture is smooth and bubbly. Serve with toasted French bread slices.
Note:

You'll need 6 to 7 pounds of cooked whole crawfish for 1 pound of hard-earned meat. Or sub in frozen, peeled crawfish tails.
