Wow, yummy, easy and adaptable. I used what I had on hand. Shredded cheddar cheese in sauce and a habenero cheddar cheese for the top because we like spicy! I also added a bag of washed fresh baby spinach to the crab, cheese sauce. (I add spinach to a lot of things) My family loved it, will definitely make again.
