6-Ingredient Holiday Shrimp Dip

6-Ingredient Holiday Shrimp Dip

 

We’re attending a couple of get-togethers over the weekend, so I thought I’d whip up my favorite festive shrimp dip. It makes so much that I can split the dip in half and offer it up for both events. That’s my kind of recipe – make it once, enjoy it twice! Plus, it only has six ingredients, and if you buy pre-cooked shrimp, there isn’t even any cooking involved, meaning it’s super fast yet super tasty. And, to top it all off, it’s relatively healthy.

I usually serve it with the little bowl-like tortilla chips so it’s easy to scoop up and eat. Feel free to serve it with crackers as well though.

Here’s how you make it:

 

Ingredients:

One bunch of green onions – sliced

1/4 cup cilantro – chopped

1 small jar of shrimp cocktail sauce (or half of a large one)

Hot Sauce such as Louisiana – to taste

Two avocados – diced and tossed with lemon juice, if desired

1 lb. peeled, deveined shrimp (smaller shrimp will do just fine – I just used what I had on hand.)

Directions:

If the shrimp aren’t cooked, boil them until just done, and chop them in halves or thirds.

Mix the hot sauce, cocktail sauce, onions, and cilantro in a bowl. Add salt and pepper if desired.

Add shrimp and avocado and stir. Let cool in the refrigerator for a couple of hours.

Serve cold with tortilla chips or crackers.

    How might it be without the hot sauce! I LOVE shrimp but things that are too spicy might not go,over with a few members of the family. Or, can you just add less of it?

    How did our cilantro-hating Mom birth us?! I LOVE cilantro and love this recipe. I’m going to print 100 copies of it, tape them together and use them for wrapping Mom’s Christmas presents this year. Maybe I’ll add some DWTS pictures to make it just right!

      YES!!! Preach it, sistah! I’m totally going to follow your lead. I think I’m even going to take it one step further and wrap up a bag of cilantro for her in photos of scantilly-clad Dancing with the Stars pros.

  • No, No, No, Becky! No cilantro! UGH!
    And no blog post about a recipe without some of your terrific humor or personal funny, amusing stories so I can have my morning giggle. Now get to it!!! YLM

      Hey, who do you think you are to chastise my admitted cop-out of a post? My mom?! Geez! Before I know it, you’ll try to send me to my room. And I can’t help it that you have the “cilantro-tastes-like-soap” gene.

      Anyway, have a good day . . . um, Mom.
