I love this shrimp dip because it gives you shrimp cocktail plus cream cheese. Say no more. Plus, this dip is as easy to make as it is to eat! Great for you last minute party planners!
- 1-2 packages cream cheese
- 1/2 c. sour cream
- 1/2 c. salad shrimp
- 1 c. of cocktail sauce -or- 1 c. ketchup and 2 Tbl shredded horseradish (drained)
Using a hand mixer, blend cream cheese (packages depending on the size of your dish) and sour cream. Your looking for a constancy which will be less stiff and be easily scooped by a cracker without cracking it.
Spread cream cheese on bottom of your chosen dish. I always use a glass pie pan.
Spread cocktail sauce over cream cheese.
Place shrimp in a strainer and allow all excess shrimp juice to drip out.
Scatter shrimp over cocktail sauce and you are done.
Presto: Shrimp Dip!
