Shrimp Chip Dip #SundayFunday

Surprise your family and friends with the addition of this Shrimp Chip Dip on your appetizer buffet this New Years Eve.

Shrimp Chip Dip

The Sunday Funday crew are ringing in the New Year.........
Sneha of Sneha's Recipe has invited us all to share a special dish to ring in 2021.  I think we can all agree that we are happy to see 2020 come to an end and have lots of reasons to celebrate the arrival of New Year. 

I see a lot of traditional "good luck" foods in there.  I don't know about you but we feast nearly every day from Thanksgiving until January 6th when we celebrate Epiphany.  I get to the point where I can't even think about what I want to eat, let alone what I want to serve.  

Shrimp Chip Dip

So often, on New Years Eve, we just enjoy leftovers or small plates/appetizers often made with leftovers.  Perhaps Ham Salad stuffed inside Pate a Choux, or Nachos made with Leftover Turkey.  Then I add some other easy dishes to round it out.  Perhaps a Veggie Pizza Appetizer, Shrimp Cocktail or an Onion Dip for chips.

For today's celebration I decided to combine my shrimp cocktail with the ingredients needed to make chip dip.  This recipe was inspired by one found in Cuisine at Home and it is a fun, surprising and unusual dish to serve up to family and friends.

I had to admonish The Teen to leave some for other guests.  The following night she asked if I would make more.  I was able to accommodate her but was out of chips so she ate it with crackers and was happy as could be.

This is a great and easy recipe that I can see making time and time again as I often have all the ingredients on hand.

    1. I have to be honest. I didn't get a chance to try it. By the time I was finishing up in the kitchen all the kids had devoured it.

  2. Teen endorsed! This I need to make! ASAP!

  3. I miss gatherings where I could have served this, but the time will come again, and I'll be ready. This Shrimp dip sounds so good, and I know it'll be a big hit with all my like minded friends as well.
