Or the crowd-pleasing cream cheese block covered with jelly. Jalepeno jelly or any hot (spicy) jelly works best but I've seen it done with just about any kind or with salsa. Serve with crackers.

Another topping for the cream cheese is a bottle of Pickapeppa sauce (http://www.pickapeppa.com) with some pineapple preserves mixed in.  It comes out sweet and hot.  It LOOKS awful but tastes great!  I have even put a sign on the dish saying "I know it looks bad but just taste it you will really like it."

Hmmmmm:

This is an excellent crab dip. You can either bake and move to a crockpot to stay warm or you can mix up the night before, put in the crockpot, and then once at the office turn to  low and cook for 2 to 3 hours till hot once you get to the office.
