"This was excellent! I made it for a Christmas party and eveyone loved it! I especially loved to spread it on Ritz crackers - the buttery flavor of the cracker complemented the flavor of the dip. It's a keeper!"

"This was so good, I could have eaten it with a spoon! I used light cream cheese, and next time will use 2% fat cheese to lighten it up even more. Also used medium fresh shrimp (cooked) and chopped. I will definitely make this one a permanent card in my recipe box!"

"Made this dip last week for a holiday party. Everyone loved it so much, was glad I made two plates! Used more salsa and cocktail sauce and cheese than the recipe calls for. Try this dip - it's really good!"
