Cream Cheese Shrimp Dip

This Cream Cheese Shrimp Dip is literally the easiest dip you will ever make. Even though there is not a whole lot to it, it is delicious and SO addicting. I usually like to get the shrimp the day of serving, just so it is extra fresh. You can find the mini shrimps in the seafood/meat department of most grocery stores. They typically come pre-cooked, peeled, deveined etc… (I actually have never seen them any other way, to be honest). In addition, if you want to make it a little lighter you can use neufchatel cheese. Neufchatel is a cream cheese made with skim milk, making it a healthier option.

 A Great Holiday Dip

We usually make this dip on or around Christmas Day and/or New Year’s as a quick appetizer. So if you are in a pinch to bring an appetizer to your next Christmas party, bring this! It will take 5 seconds to put together and be one less stressful thing you have to deal with this holiday season. Not only is it so easy, but people love it! Whenever we bring this dip to a party it gets gobbled up in no time!

What to Dip in Cream Cheese Shrimp Dip

For the crackers in the picture I used the Great Value Rosemary Crackers from Walmart (I have been addicted to those things lately), but you can use any kind of chip or cracker that you like best. The crackers not only taste delicious with he rosemary seasoning, they also have a pretty scalloped edge. Our Dad likes using “Chicken in a Biscuit” to dip. You could also use Wheat Thins, Triscuits, or Ritz Crackers!
