This recipe got only OK reviews from family and friends. Given the amount of effort to make it, I will probably not make it again.

Huge hit at both parties I served it at. The second time I used "light" mayonnaise and I don't think it "held" together as well so I think better to stick to full fat and it tasted better, too. Not real "calorie friendly" but I am a cook, not a cardiologist. A definate keeper. I served it with chunks of homemade bread and thicker style crackers.

This recipe got rave reviews from my family. I cut the mayo in half (1 cup), omitted the water chestnuts and increased the hot sauce for an extra zip. I served the dip with a sliced baguette and assorted water crackers. I added lump crab meat to the leftovers. Unbelievable!
