What to Dip in Crab Rangoon Dip

If not following the low-carb route, there is one dipper that makes this dip even more amazing: fried wonton chips! It’s the ultimate dipper for crab rangoon dip.

Additionally, here are some other great options for dippers:

  • Tortilla chips
  • Crackers
  • Chips
  • Pretzels
  • Baguette slices
  • Veggies (low carb option)
  • Pork rinds (low carb option)

How to Store Crab Rangoon Dip

Store leftover dip in a covered air-tight container in the fridge for up to three days (we love these glass containers with locking lids for storing dips!). Heat and mix well before re-serving. Do not freeze this dip. Mayonnaise will break when defrosted, and no amount of mixing will fix its grainy texture.

Tips for Making Crab Rangoon Dip

  • Mix the base ingredients before adding the crab, cheese, and onions to ensure everything is fully incorporated.
  • Spread your dip in an even layer before baking so it heats evenly.
