Layered Shrimp Dip

People's eyes light up when I set this special snack on the table. Layered Shrimp Dip has a terrific combination of flavors and looks so pretty. Once folks start dipping, they can't seem to stop. —Sue Broyles, Cherokee, Texas

    Very good dip. Ritz cracker work better then tortilla chips, they keep breaking.

    I used the frozen small shrimp and added more of all ingredients. I also put the sliced olives on the side in a seperate dish, as not everyone likes olives. It was yummy and everyone wanted the receipe.
