Calories 228 kcal

Ingredients
  

  • 4 Tablespoons butter 1/2 stick
  • 2 cups trinity equal parts chopped onion, green bell pepper, and celery
  • 1/4 jalapeno finely chopped
  • 2-4 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 cups of boiled crawfish tails
  • 1 8 oz package of cream cheese
  • 1/2 Tablespoon of Cajun seasoning use if not pre-seasoned
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • In a small pot, heat butter on medium heat. Add trinity and jalapeño and cook until onions are almost translucent. Add minced garlic and continue to cook in the pot and stir.
  • Add the crawfish tails and stir, just until warm, because they are already cooked.
  • Add cream cheese to the pot, and stir until melted (about 3-5 minutes). Add salt, pepper, and optional Cajun seasoning. Serve hot or cold!

Notes

Trinity or "The Holy Trinity" is a mixture of chopped onion, green bell pepper, and celery. It's a must in Cajun cooking and you will see it in some of my recipes!
I served mine with gluten free bagel chips, but it was also good with plantain chips.
