This easy recipe only requires a handful of simple ingredients. Here's what you'll need:
- Cream cheese
- Canned crab meat
- Sour cream
- Green onions
- Wonton wrappers
- Sweet chili sauce
- Oil, for frying
Preheat a deep fryer to 350 degrees F.

Drain the fried chips on paper towels or a wire rack.
Begin this easy recipe by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F.
In a medium sized bowl, beat the softened cream cheese until it is smooth. This will help the ingredients combine together better. Stir in the drained canned crab meat, sour cream, mayonnaise, sugar, salt, and ¾ of the sliced green onions.
Transfer this mixture to a small oven safe dish. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until heated through.
Garnish with a drizzle of sweet chili sauce and the remaining sliced green onions. Serve with fried wonton chips.
Skip the deep fried chips and use other yummy dippers! Ritz crackers (or your favorite cracker), chips, or even chunks of bread would be fantastic with this dip.

When you're ready to serve, turn the slow cooker to WARM. Drizzle with sweet chili sauce and garnish with remaining sliced green onions. Serve with wonton chips.
Tips & tricks
Use different types of crab meat. Swap out the canned crab for imitation crab meat or even the real deal!
Not a fan of crab meat? You can make this dip without crab meat and it will still be absolutely delicious!
Substitute egg roll wrappers. If you can't find wonton wrappers, switch them out for egg roll wrappers. Cut the wrappers in half diagonally twice, so you're left with four triangles.
- Deep Fryer. Quickly fry up a ton of wonton chips with a large deep fryer with extra large baskets. Bigger baskets means less batches!
- 9" Oval Baking Dish. This is one of my favorite dishes! It makes a great serving dish and it's the perfect size for small casseroles and dips.
Storing and reheating
Store any leftover crab rangoon dip in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days.
Once the wonton chips have cooled, store them in a ziplock bag on the counter.
Reheat crab rangoon dip in the microwave (in a microwave safe dish) or serve it cold.
