I love the combination of fresh crab and corn; it’s one of my favorite summertime pairings. The red bell pepper adds a nice bit of color as well as some extra sweetness and texture. In this recipe, I’ve called for 8 ounces of crabmeat. I like a ton of crab flavor so I tend to double this amount, but crab can be a little pricey—8 ounces should do you just fine. By all means, add more if you care to splurge!
In a slow cooker, combine the cream cheese, Parmesan, mayonnaise, and salt. Stir in the onion, red pepper, corn, and crab.
Cover and cook on high for 1 hour or low for 2 to 3 hours, until the cheese has melted. Stir thoroughly before serving, making sure all the ingredients are well combined. Serve with the crackers.
