Bodacious Tipsy Ritzy Crab Dip

Bodacious Tipsy Ritzy Crab Dip

Bob Wiseman
It took a Superbowl party to create this tasty dip. I wanted something original other than salsa fresca, chile queso or other standard party dish. I had been working on a crab meat caldo (soup) and the formula for this recipe just popped into my mind. It went over very well and Tipsy Ritzy is famous in its own little way. It’s fun to make and having the rum handy serves another purpose.
