In a medium skillet, heat the butter over medium heat.
Add the bell peppers and green onion, and sauté for 7 minutes until softened.
Stir in spices, drained pimentos, and garlic. Sauté for 1 minute.
Add in the cream cheese and stir well until the cheese melts into the veggies. This will take about 5-10 minutes.
Pour in lemon juice, and stir well. Add in water, one tablespoon at a time until it reaches your desired consistency.
Transfer to a serving dish if desired (or serve in the skillet), and sprinkle with chopped parsley, cilantro, chives, or green onions.
*Makes about 2.5 to 3 cups*Be sure to completely thaw the crawfish tails, then rinse well, and drain. You want to remove as much liquid as possible from the crawfish before adding it, so it doesn't make the dip too soupy.
