Lou's Shrimp Spread

READY IN: 4hrs 20mins
Recipe by Its loose again

Guests just wolf this down. It keeps them busy while I finish the soup course. This would also be good stuffed into cherry tomatoes.

Although this was made for the 2 of us, the next time I make this it'll be for one of the monthly groups I host as a great new addition to my finger food buffet! Absolutely wonderful, & the only thing I changed was to reduce the amount of salt to less than 1/4 teaspoon! Thanks for a great new recipe keeper!
