Habit Forming Shrimp Dip

"This is always a request during the holiday season. Those who are allergic to shrimp need to stay away!!! There was a girl at the office who ate lots of this and blew up like a balloon. She thought she had a small allergy to shrimp. Spent the next day in the hospital. But!! still it is always in high demand. After wayout2011 review the recipe has been updated to show pre-cooked shrimp is used. Thanks you for pointing out the error."

  1. I made this for Thanksgiving and it was so delicious served with club crackers and wheat thins! It makes a lot! I am going to make it for my company Christmas party. Don't be afraid to make this a couple of days in advance because the flavors just get better. We had the leftovers 3 and 4 nights after Thankgiving and the taste was better each day.
  2. Didn't change this at all - except add some fresh chives to the top for a decoration. Over the hill with a taste sensation - had some french bread to dip into - and that's all we needed on this cozy evening. Thx!
  3. Very tasty, outstanding dip. Had it with bome chips, and it made a great appetizer for a quiet night. Made recipe as posted without any adjustments. Will be making again. Made for 1-2-3 hits.
  4. delicious! I added in fresh garlic in place of the powder and also added in some Tabasco, make certain to hand-squeeze out any excess moisture in the shrimp and then chop finely, this only gets better with chilling time, thanks for sharing Teresa!
  5. What's not to love?? I too added a healthy dash of hot sauce (Crystal) and I garneshed with a dusting of paprika. Will be making this again!


  1. great base for a really good dip, my only suggestion would be to sub half of the soup for sour cream and add fresh herbs (we like cilantro!!) and perhaps a few lemon wedges for those that may like it!
