Joe's Crab Shack: Blue Crab Dip

From Top Secret Recipes

1 8oz pkg cream cheese, softened
2 C crab meat (canned is fine)
1/4 C diced green onion
1 Tbsp minced mild red chili pepper
1 Tbsp mild green chili pepper (Anaheim)
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground white pepper
2 Tbsp shredded Parmesan cheese
Garnish with paprika and 1 teaspoon minced fresh parsley

Preheat oven to broil.
Combine cream cheese with crab, green onion, chili peppers, salt and white pepper in a medium bowl. Stir well to combine.
Spread mixture into the bottom of an oven-safe dish. Use a wide dish for this so the dip is only about an inch deep in the bottom.
Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over the surface of the dip.
Broil 3-4 minutes or until cheese on top begins to brown.
Sprinkle paprika over the dip, followed by fresh minced parsley. Serve with tortilla chips or crackers for dipping.
