Shrimp Dip Recipe

It is flaming hot outside!  I mean, if anyone disputes global warming with this heat that is currently making the any tupperware in the house melt.  And I don't know about anyone else, but I know that when it is terribly hot like it is right now (currently 30 degrees on the celsius scale, and tomorrow it is suppose to head up to 33...damn!), I don't really feel like eating.  It is a strange thing to say, but eating takes too much energy, and I don't have much of that with this blistering heat.  So in light of that, I only ever just want to eat finger food and little things to keep me awake, so I propose this shrimp dip recipe, which come to us from my sister-in-law's mother-in-law.  Here is what you will need:

2 cans of cocktail shrimp
1 jar of shrimp sauce (mild or spicy, depending on your taste)
1 brick of cream cheese, softened
1 250ml tub of sour cream
3 tbsp of mayo
1 or 2 tomatoes, depending on the size, diced
1 or 2 red onions, depending on the size, finely diced
1 green pepper, diced
2 cups of shredded cheese, mozzarella or marble
1 bag of Tostito's scoops chips

In a stand mixer of with a hand mixer, blend up the cream cheese, sour cream and mayonnaise until nice a smooth.  Spread the mixture into a 13x9 casserole dish.  Top with the shrimp sauce, then shrimp, then the other veggies, then the cheese.  Serve with the Tortilla's.


-If you don't have any shrimp, you can replace with Tuna...naw, just kidding.

-For a lighter fair, use light mayo, cream cheese and sour cream...you really can't tell the difference

Until next time,


  1. That sounds good!! I like the idea of shrimp. We normally do it with salsa and then cheese. No peppers or tomatoes. Good variation of the idea. How is the family? Something heading your way in the next few days. Sorry it has taken so long but you know how lazy I can be....I mean we can be!!!


  2. I absolutely LOVE this dip... and I'm not even very crazy about shrimp!

    The only thing I ask is that you clarify in which order you and Sylvia put the veggies so I can repeat exactly! ;)

  3. Along with the LIGHT mayo, cream cheese and sour cream, also use LIGH mozza cheese - and yes, this dip is lovely!


Thanks for taking the time to visit. We always love to hear from you.
