Hot Crab Rangoon Dip with Crispy Wonton Chips

I’m a huge fan of crab rangoon. So when I saw crab rangoon dip, I had to try it myself!

It’s a mix of succulent crab meat, cream cheese, sour cream, shredded mozzarella, green onion, and more.

Baked to bubbly perfection and served with a side of wonton chips, it’s easy, irresistible, and drool-worthy!

So preheat that oven and prepare to fall head over heels for crab rangoon dip. You can thank me later.

Crab rangoon dip with wonton chips and dipping sauces


Crab rangoon dip is full of creamy, cheesy, umami goodness. Together, they melt in your mouth! 

For the full effect, serve this with the wonton chips. The added crunch makes this dip just like the original appetizer.

Here’s the full list of ingredients:

  • Cream Cheese – Use softened cream cheese so it incorporates better. 
  • Sour Cream – The creamy, tanginess makes the dip extra yummy. 
  • Mayonnaise – I recommend full-fat mayo for the best texture and flavor.
  • Shredded Cheese – For that irresistible ooey-gooey goodness, use a combo of freshly grated mozzarella and Parmesan.
  • Lump Crab Meat – Use real lump crab meat – not imitation. You’ll find it in the refrigerated seafood section and canned goods aisle.
  • Green Onion – The freshness helps break up some of the richness. It also adds a lovely pop of color.
  • Garlic – I prefer fresh garlic. But garlic powder works in a pinch.
  • Worcestershire Sauce – Just a few teaspoons deliver a savory, umami punch.
  • Soy Sauce – For an umami boost.
  • Salt and Pepper – Season to taste.
  • Sriracha (Optional) – Spice things up with Sriracha!
  • Wonton Chips – Instead of wrapping, use wonton chips for dipping. Genius!

How to Make Crab Rangoon Dip 

Unlike crab rangoon bites, this hot dip doesn’t require any stuffing. Instead, just mix, bake, and dip!

The entire process only takes 35 minutes!

Here’s how to make it:

1. Mix the creamy ingredients in a large bowl until smooth and well blended.

2. Add the remaining ingredients. That’s most of the mozzarella, Parmesan, green onions, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, salt, pepper, and sriracha. Stir until well combined, then gently fold in the crab meat.

3. Assemble and bake. Transfer the mixture to a baking dish, sprinkle the remaining mozzarella on top, and bake until bubbly.

4. Serve with a side of wonton chips. Enjoy!

How to Make Wonton Chips

Feel free to use regular tortilla chips, toasted bread, crackers, etc. for dipping.

But for the best taste and texture, why not make a batch of crispy wonton chips?

Enter your email below & we'll send it straight to your inbox.

Here’s how:

  1. Cut 24 wonton wrappers in half (one 6 ounce package).
  2. Warm 1/2-1 inch of oil in a heavy-bottomed pan to 350°F.
  3. Fry the wontons in batches for about 15 seconds on either side.
  4. Transfer cooked chips onto a paper towel-lined plate and sprinkle lightly with salt.
  5. Repeat with the remaining wrappers.

To save on time, you can make these a day ahead! Just let them cool, then store them in an airtight container at room temperature.

    • Hi JoAnn!
      Those are homemade 🙂

      You’ll find the recipe in the post for frying. Or you can bake them:
      Cut wonton wrappers into triangles and line on a baking sheet (single layer).
      Spray with cooking spray, then bake for 5 to 7 minutes, until golden brown and crispy.

      I also like this with pita chips, which you can find in most supermarkets!

  1. Do you think the crab rangoon would work for the stuffing of deep-fried wontons? You know the ones Chinese restaurants serve.

    • Hey, Karen! Unfortunately, I don’t think this dip would work as a filling for wontons. The crab meat in this dip is cut into larger chunks, and the shredded cheeses would make the filling extremely thick. For the most part, the filling in deep-fried wontons is smooth and creamy. This dip is meant to be thicker and chunkier.
