Salsa, cream cheese, shrimp, mexican cheese dip

Penny Hall


This recipe is so good there is none left after any event. I made some of this today to take for "treat night" at work. There wasn't any left to bring home. Unfortunately, no one ate any of the other "treats"...

10 Min


3 (8 oz ) packages of philadelphia cream cheese
1 bag ( 12 oz) frozen cooked small shrimp
1 cup shredded mexican or fiesta blend cheese
1 (14 oz) container of fresh salsa(mild, medium, or hot)

Directions Step-By-Step

Lay each cream cheese block side by side in a sealable dish.
Defrost shrimp by placing in a colandar and running cool water over them till they are nearly thawed all the way through. Drain then spread over the cream cheese blocks.
Spoon the salsa over the top till completely covered.
Sprinkle the shreded cheese over the top of all the other ingredients, cover and keep chilled till ready to serve.
Serve on waverly cracker, ritz, or even tortilla chips. Some people like to use Pace Picante sauce, but I prefer fresh salsa, and nearly everyone that eats this treat loves it that way too.
