I thought for sure that everyone had experienced a Crab Rangoon at some time in their lives but I was shocked to learn that some people didn't have any idea what I was talking about. For those of you who are in that group of people who don't know what the heck I'm talking about here is a little run down. Crab Rangoon's can be found at most quick Chinese restaurants and they are usually made of a won ton that is filled with a cream cheese/crab mixture and then fried. They are delicious. They are not very healthy but when you're out eating Chinese food, healthy choices are sometimes hard to find.
I discovered this recipe on Pinterest of course. I was looking for a quick recipe that I could make on limited time. I'm so glad I found this one. It really does taste like the filling you would find inside of a Rangoon. The website I found it on indicated that it's best served with fried won ton strips but obviously those would be hard to find and hard to "quickly" make so I just served it with tortilla chips. It must have been a hit at the party I brought it too because after only about 3 hours it was all gone.
I'll happily keep this in my arsenal for quick dips!
