"I love this dip, only I use cream of shrimp soup instead of cream of mushroom unless I m making a large mold in which case I double the recipe and use cream of mushroom and a can of cream of shrimp."

"I made this recipe year's ago for a get together. Everyone loved it. I borrowed the Taste of Home booklet to a friend & unfortunately it was never returned. I have been looking for this recipe since. I'm making it for a potluck, and can't wait to eat it!"
