Crab Stuffed Artichoke Appetizer
|Artichokes||16 Ounce, prepared for cooking (2 Small Ones)|
|Sour cream||2 Tablespoon|
|Mayonnaise||1 1⁄3 Tablespoon (1 Tablespoon Plus 1 Teaspoon)|
|Chopped chives||1 Tablespoon (Fresh / Frozen)|
|Chili sauce||2 Teaspoon|
|Lemon juice||1 Tablespoon|
|Prepared horseradish||1 Teaspoon|
|Worcestershire sauce||1 Teaspoon|
|Dijon style mustard||1⁄2 Teaspoon|
|Hot sauce||1 Dash|
|Crab meat||4 Ounce, drained (Canned / Frozen, Thawed)|
Pour about 3 inches water into saucepan (not aluminum or cast-iron) that is just large enough to hold artichokes snugly; add lemon juice and salt and stand artichokes upright in pan.
Cover pan and let simmer until bases of artichokes can be pierced easily with a fork, about 35 minutes.
Remove artichokes from liquid and stand upside down to drain.
When artichokes have drained thoroughly, cut each in half lengthwise; remove and discard choke and tough outer leaves.
In medium bowl combine all ingredients for filling except crab meat; stir in crab meat, stirring until thoroughly coated with dressing.
Stuff each artichoke half with 1/4 of the filling; transfer to serving plate, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until well chilled.
