    I've been making this for several years, and it always goes fast. I also add some minced colored peppers for a bit of color and crunch.

    This is both very tasty & easy to put together! I followed WJSymons comment and added a couple of glugs of Worcestershire and used a 6-oz. can of crab meat because I had it. I served it with Wheat Thins Great Plains Multigrain chips with great success. Can't wait to try it with shrimp. Hint: If you're covering with foil or plastic wrap to transport, cut coffee stir straws to toothpick length and insert in the dip to hold the covering off of the spread. The straws don't punch holes through the wrap as easily toothpicks do.

    This is just the best dip. I put a bit of Worchestershire sauce in with the cream cheese mixture and I use crab meat instead of shrimp. I make this all the time and there's never enough.

    If you like shrimp you will love this spread. My family has enjoyed this for many years prepared for the Holidays. I actually have not made it the past couple of years...need to bring this recipe back out.

    My family loves this recipe. I like to cook it the night before Thanksgiving because its such an easy and light meal plus my family never leaves leftovers.

    Wonderful! However, I did not use the reduced fat version of the items. For ease of transporting, used a glass pie dish and covered with foil.
