Mamma's Shrimp Dip

READY IN: 24hrs 10mins
Recipe by Jellyqueen

My mother used to fix this for all occasions. It is so quick and easy to make, plus it has to be made the day before, so that will free up time the day of the party for other chores. It is one of my family's favorites. Cook time is refrigerator time.

I haven't made this in years. Thanks for reminding me about it. You can do the same thing using cocktail sauce instead of picante.
