Party Food

Whew - almost forgot to post this for ya.

If you still have time to get your Superbowl food together, this is a dip you might want to try - OR if you just want make this for yourself and hide in a closet and eat it, that would be okay too.  Because - it's just that good and SO easy and FAST.  Here goes:

1 8 oz package cream cheese (softened)

1/2 sour cream

1/3 cup mayo (You can add herbs if you like, but I don't)

1 cup cocktail sauce

1 and 1/2 lbs shrimp, cooked, deveined, and sliced up

2 cups finely shredded sharp chedder cheese


3/4 cups chopped tomatoes

Mix together the softened cream cheese, sour cream, and mayo.  You can use a mixer if you need to.  Spread this all out on a medium sized platter.  My platter is an oval about 12-14" end to end. 

Cover this with about 1 cup of cocktail sauce.

Sprinkle 2 cups of shredded sharp cheese on top of the cocktail sauce.

Layer the 1 and 1/2 lb of the cooked and cup up shrimp all over the top of the cheese.  Add the chopped tomatoes over all of this and lastly, sprinkle the 6 or so cut up scallions all over the top for beautiful presentation. 

Serve this with some sort of sturdy cracker to dip it up with.

This is a great "go-to" dip for any occasion,  People will love you when you feed them this.  You will be the queen or king for the day.  You can tell them it's a family recipe and you can't share it.

Delicious - Enjoy!    ~ Debi

  6. This sounds really good and reminds me of a craving I was having for shrimp! :-)

  7. I made this over the holidays and what a hit it was. I love your blog...You asked what our weather was in your post today...I live in No. Illinois and we are waiting for a 6 in. snow. It should start any minute. We've had a wonderful winter with almost no snow yet.
