Melt butter in 2 quart saucepan; add cream cheese and stir until cheese is melted. *I usually whisk the melted cream cheese and butter together once the cream cheese is melted.
In heavy Dutch oven, saute onion, bell pepper and celery in 3T butter.
Add sliced mushrooms and shrimp and simmer about 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
Add the melted cream cheese and butter mixture.
Blend in soup, seasonings and rice.
Spray a large casserole dish with vegetable spray. Then carefully place mixture in the casserole dish.
Toss Cheddar cheese and cracker crumbs together and sprinkle over top. Bake at 350 for 30 min, until bubbly and golden brown.
