Ingredients
  • 2 cans (170 g undrained) crab meat
  • 2 packages light cream cheese (250g each), at room temperature

  • 2 red peppers
Instructions
  1. Drain both cans of crab meat and place in bowl. Add cream cheese and about ¾ of the chives. Mix thoroughly until well combined.
  2. Wash mushroom caps and pull stems out. Finely chop mushroom stems and add to crab mixture.
