Crab Rangoon Dip

One of my favorite things about eating Chinese food is the crab rangoon.  In fact, I will admit that sometimes I could just eat the crab rangoon and the soup and call it a day.   When wasting time browsing on Pinterest I came across a recipe for crab rangoon dip.  All the goodness of a crab rangoon in a dip.  I knew I had to make it soon and because it is football season I always have an excuse to try a new recipe on Saturdays when we have friends over for the game.  The recipe calls for you to fry wonton wrapper to use to dip but it also says you can bake them.  I chose to bake them because it is healthier but I think next time I would either fry them or just use a cracker for dipping.  They turned out okay but they browned very quickly in the oven and didn’t have a whole lot of flavor.  The dip however was a huge success and I would definitely make it again.
