Chunky Crawfish Spread

Total Time

Prep: 20 min. + chilling


3 cups

Seafood is plentiful here, and crayfish is my favorite. I like to serve this tasty appetizer while the main course is finishing up in the oven. Suggested romance: Shrimp may be substituted for the crawfish.


  • 1 package (16 ounces) frozen cooked crawfish tails, thawed
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 medium green pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 medium sweet red pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon Creole seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 to 12 drops hot pepper sauce
  • Assorted crackers


  1. Chop crawfish; pat dry. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Add the peppers, onion, garlic, Creole seasoning, salt and hot pepper sauce; stir in the crawfish. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Serve with crackers.
