    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This is a huge favorite at my get togethers, it's the perfect spread with crackers, it's easy to put together just layer and serve. It can be prepared hours in advance and refrigerated until serving time. Once your guests try this everyone will want the recipe it's *that* good!--- 2 cups fresh cooked baby shrimp can be used in place of the canned, but canned is much easier, you will love this! :)

      Good recipe but I think it would have been better with only about half of the veggies and cheese to sprinkle on top. There was a tad too much and it overpowered the flavor of the shrimp. Also, I wish I had drained the shrimp more using paper towels to blot up more of the moisture in them as the moisture pooled. Next time, I will also save some shrimp to scatter on the top of the dish so people know what it is. People didn't know it was a shrimp dip and thought it was something more on the order of a nacho dip based on the appearance. And, since the shrimp flavor was masked by so much cheese and veggies, even then it didn't have enough shrimp flavor. Anyway, a very good recipe that with a few tweaks should be a great recipe. And a nice change from the usual shrimp dips I've had.

      Terrific (as usual!). On second attempt, I added 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, and replaced mozzarella with Monterrey Jack (and chopped the cheese after grating it). Green pepper definately optional - may try red next time. YUM! Thanks, Kitten.
