Spicy Shrimp Dip – a quick and easy dip that is great to serve at any get together. You can make ahead and heat right before guests arrive!
If you follow me on Instagram, you may remember that a few weeks ago I had the opportunity to go to San Francisco with Safeway. We learned all about some of the new products they have in the store for the holidays. We even were able to sample many of the salads and sides available in stores. Check out the deli section at your local store if you want to try them too!
Today I have a fun and easy holiday appetizer recipe for you that will surely impress at any party you attend. Plus it is so easy to make, you can whip it up last minute, or even make it ahead of time.
Spicy Shrimp Dip uses Open Nature® shrimp that you can purchase at Safeway. You can find it in the frozen seafood section of your store. Open Nature seafood is wild caught, which I love. I used the petite shrimp, because I was chopping them up for this dip. But the large and jumbo are great when you want to Saute Shrimp for Pasta.
pen Nature products are available in my area exclusively at Safeway. If you don’t have a Safeway near you, you can also find Open Nature and all the products in this post at any of the Albertsons Companies family of stores including Albertsons, Acme Markets, Jewel-Osco, Vons, Pavilions, Randalls, Tom Thumb, Shaw’s, Star Market, United Express, United and Carrs/Safeway.
Next up on the ingredients list are bell peppers. I used red bell peppers, but you can you use, green, orange, yellow or any other color you can find. You could even use a mix if you wanted! Red and green for Christmas? I make sure to use good Parmesan cheese when making this dip. Not the stuff that comes in a can.
O Organics® makes super creamy cream cheese, that I love to use in dips. It mixes and blends well, and always makes your dips taste delicious. To make this Spicy Shrimp Dip you just cook the shrimp and veggies ahead of time, and then mix it together with the cheese and spices. The O Organics line offers USDA certified products perfect to use for a variety of meals, from easy weeknight favorites to holiday show-stoppers, all at an affordable price.
So this holiday season make sure you stop by your local Safeway store to see all the great holiday treats they have, and stock up so you can make this super easy shrimp dip recipe. O Organics pita crackers are great to serve with this shrimp dip or even hot crab dip at your get together.
You will be the hit of the party when you show up with this dip recipe. To make the dip ahead of time, instead of baking it right away, cover and place in the fridge until you are ready. Bake for an additional 5 minutes to make sure it is hot and bubbly.
You could even put this spicy shrimp dip in the crock pot to keep it warm during your get together.
