Just found this online, plan to make it soon, but not with reduced fat
anything, and will use soy or lc pita chips, sugar snaps, English cuke
slices and celery in place of crackers. Costco has great prices on good
quality crab meat.

Hot Crab Dip

8 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese (Neufchatel), room temperature
1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream
1/4 teaspoon hot sauce
1/4 teaspoon crab boil spices, (recommended: Old Bay)
1 garlic clove, minced
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
12 ounces fresh crab meat, picked over for bits of shell and patted dry
2 scallions, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
2 to 3 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

Whole-wheat crackers for serving, optional
Stir together the cream cheese, sour cream, hot sauce, crab boil spice,
and garlic in a medium saucepan until smooth; season, to taste, with
salt and pepper. Heat the cream cheese mixture over medium-low heat
until warm, stirring constantly, 2 to 3 minutes. Fold in the crab,
scallions, parsley and lemon juice and warm until heated through, about
1 minute more. Serve immediately.
