Total Calories: 220


3 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 cups frozen seasoning blend
1 cup finely chopped crawfish tails
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened


Melt butter in skillet over medium-high heat. Add seasoning blend and crawfish; sauté 2–3 minutes while stirring. Add garlic salt and pepper. Turn off heat and add cream cheese, stirring till mixed. Serve warm or chilled with dry toasted bread squares or hearty crackers.

Editor's Extra: Crawfish tails are available frozen in most supermarkets.

Fun Fact: Frozen seasoning blend is a mixture of chopped onions, celery, and bell pepper. It is very convenient to have handy without having to chop fresh. Cajuns call this mixture the Holy Trinity, as few of their dishes start without these three vegetables sautéed, sometimes in a roux.
