Author Notes

I knew I wanted to make a dip for Super Bowl Sunday with crab, but was not sure what direction to head. I found roasted red peppers and artichokes in the cabinet, and just went with it. I'm still debating on if cold or hot is better, but you can always decide last minute which you prefer. —Sweetnan
