Crab rangoon is one of the things we order most when we get take-out. If you haven’t tried it or even heard of it, crab rangoon is a crispy, fried pocket of creamy goodness, filled with a crabmeat and cream cheese combo that will make you drool. We’d only had them at Chinese restaurants, but we figured we could easily whip up the creamy filling at home…and then instead of dealing with frying individual pockets, why not leave the perfections as is and serve it as a dip?! We grabbed our trusty slow cooker for this and came up with a delicious dip that was devoured once we put it on the table. Put down the Chinese menu and hang up the phone, you can make easily this crab rangoon masterpiece at home!
