Creamy Crab Dip

This crab dip is so yummy! Even if you don't like crab, you should try this recipe! You really can't taste the crab. It's very tasty! I made it once and sent some home with my parents. My brother and his wife tasted it and called right away asking for the recipe! **I don't like real crab (too chewy)-- so I use imitation.**

2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/2-1 tsp minced garlic
2 tablespoons chicken broth
2 tablespoons grated onion
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3-6 drops hot pepper sauce (go with more if you like heat)
12 ounces premium crabmeat, drained
4 tablespoons minced fresh parsley, divided
1/3 cup slivered almonds, toasted
Assorted crackers

In a large heavy saucepan over low heat, combine the first nine ingredients. Cook and stir until cream cheese is melted and mixture is heated through. Stir in crab and 2 tablespoons parsley; heat through.
Transfer to a serving bowl; sprinkle with almonds, paprika and remaining parsley. Serve warm with crackers. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 3-1/4 cups.
