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
