Goat Cheese Crab Dip

I tried this new recipe for chicken sliders the other night and I couldn't figure out what to do as a side. We were in need of a new side dish bad! Tired and bored of the same ole' vegetable as a side! I know this isn't the healthiest, but it was a nice change in pace. This will not be an all the time dish in our house, but it was super yummy! Soooooooo goooooood! 
Goat Cheese Crab Dip:

2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup red onions
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup half and half
8 ounces cream cheese, cubed
1/2 cup bell pepper, cubed
1 4oz can green chili's, minced
4 ounces crumbled goat cheese
1 pound crab meat, cubed
1/4 cup parsley
1/4 panko bread crumbs
1/2 teaspoon paprika
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Melt the butter in a large skillet. Once the butter is completely melted add onions. Saute until clear. Add the bell peppers and garlic and cook for two minutes. Add the half and half and the green chili's mix thoroughly. Add the cream cheese in and mix until smooth. Add half of the goat cheese and mix that until it is smooth. Remove from heat and add in the crab meat and parsley. Place in a casserole dish. In a small bowl, mix the panko breadcrumbs and remaining goat cheese. Mix until you get little balls of cheese covered in breadcrumbs. Spread that mixture over the top of the crab mixture.
 Sprinkle paprika, salt, and pepper over the top. Pop it into the oven for 15-20 minutes. 
When you pull this out of the oven it takes exactly 5.7 seconds for the family to gather around. We had this as a side to chicken sliders one night. It was so good and creamy and yummy!
