Crawfish DipCrawfish Dip-My go to crawfish recipe!

One of my favorite dips for years, and in fact, I used it for catering. Of course, in my Gulf Coast cookbook, it’s simple to put together and extras (if you have any) is great served over rice for the next day’s dinner.  I love crawfish season to be able to purchase Louisiana crawfish tails at a good price.   If you’re looking for a good way to enjoy Louisiana crawfish, this simple to make dip is the way to go.  This deliciously zesty crawfish dip is an amazingly diverse recipe that may be used as a casual dip or served over rice for flavor filled meal. With a light tomato white sauce and a touch of heat, this dynamic dip is the perfect crowd pleaser.
