Spinach Crawfish Dip

Last year I was totally bummed out that I had to miss crawfish season.  You see I was in the beginning stages of my pregnancy and nothing, I mean nothing, sounded good to me.  This year I knew I had to make it up to myself and to my husband.  We have already devoured the mud bugs several times in the traditional crawfish boil manner.  If you have never been to a crawfish boil it is crawfish, potatoes and corn in a DELICIOUS seasoning.  Crawfish is a lot of work just for a little itty bitty piece of meat but it is so worth it.

This past week I bought some frozen crawfish (cringe) at the grocery store and decided to finally make a dip.  Now mind you that there are only two of us at our house that are able to eat solid foods.  There was A LOT of dip so we decided to make some rice and pour it over the top.  Either way you should totally try out this spinach crawfish dip.

  1. I imagine when I was pregnant, crawfish wouldn’t have appealed to me either. So glad that you can indulge this year, though. I bought some at the farmer’s market but the best boiled crawfish i bought this year was in the entryway of HEB! Of all places! But, it was deliciously spiced. Enjoy.
