This can be made as a mold by lining a bowl with plastic wrap and putting the spread in and chill for a few hours. Place a plate over the bowl and invert and remove plastic.
I just like to put it in a bowl and serve it that way.


2- 8 oz packages cream cheese, softened
2 Tablespoons sour cream
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper, also known as cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground thyme
1 cup cooked crab meat- tastes fine with imitation crab
1/4 cup finely chopped green pepper

Mix the cream cheese, sour cream, and spices until well blended. Add the crab and green pepper.
Put into serving dish or a mold that you are using. Refrigerate for three hours for flavors to meld.
Serve with your favorite crackers.
Makes 3 cups.
