Jalapeno Crab Dip

Jalapeno Crab DipThis is one of my favorite appetizers to whip up for parties. It’s easy to put together, and people would never guess it’s gluten free. Everything I serve here is, and I bring gluten free items to pot lucks since I never know what I’m going to be able to have. I set this out with blue corn and regular corn tortilla chips (my family scoffs at the blue corn)! I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season.

12 ounces lump crab meat (double check for cartilage!)
1 1/2 cups sharp white cheddar cheese
2 jalapenos, seeds removed and diced
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 teaspoon lemon juice
6 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup sweet rice flour
1 cup milk

jalacrabdip3Preheat the oven to 375F. In a large skillet over medium heat place the garlic and butter. When melted add the flour and slowly add the milk, stirring occasionally until thickened. Stir in 1 cup of the cheese, the crab meat, the lemon juice and the jalapenos. When combined place the mixture into a 9×9 baking pan or 1 quart dish. Sprinkle the rest of the cheese over the top and place into the oven. Bake for 20 minutes. Makes about 2 cups.
