This recipe is alright. It was a little bland, could have used more cheese. There was a nice hint of a kick though which played off the crab nicely. There also was a TON of the crab mixture so I stuffed some into some jalapenos which was pretty delicious, had a bit more of a kick. I'll give this one another try, adding more cheese and salt/pepper. I might just stuff jalapenos next time.
