Christmas Cheer (Or Any Time of Year) Cheese & Shrimp Spread
15 mins (prep 15)
11 ingredients
12 servings
This is another recipe from the Tasty Holiday Gifts cookbook SusieQusie spied for me on the bargain table at Half Price Bookstore in Dallas last month. It was on sale for $1 & we had a 15% off coupon, so it was an $.85 wonder! I modified their recipe to include shrimp + green & red peppers & then also added chili sauce for its flavor & color, but you can leave the latter out if you prefer. It was pictured in the book as a molded star shape, but I do not have one & have suggested alternatives below. I hope you enjoy this during the holidays, but it would be just as good during the rest of the year.
