This is a staple for us on Festive Occassions. And a hit at parties. We double the recipe and do two large platters. Rather than using canned shrimp we purchase fresh shrimp and finely chop it. We also add one can of flaked crab meat. The whole thing is finished with mozza and we add lots extra. This dish tastes best after it has been refrigerated. When we serve it we use the mini round tortilla chips. Individual size for dipping. It never lasts.
An excellent recipe, the addition of mozza cheese and the combination of mayo/sour cream really added to an old Christmas recipe. Lack of ingredients prevents me from reviewing most recipes. I used the only cocktail sauce available, in town, mild.
Good flavor but consistency a little soft. Next time I will cut the mayo and sour cream in half. I served the shrimp on the side because I have friends that don't like shrimp, and it worked out great as a build-your-own cracker topper.
Some people also call it surprise dip and leave out the shrimp
~~ This one is a TRUE WINNER. I have been making this for years. I use Miracle whip, instead of mayo (more tangy) and cheddar cheese, or marble. (I will have to try with mozzarella. The only other things I do diffrent is, I use 1/2 cup sour cream (instead if 1/4)and 1/4 cup of miracle whip (instead of 1/2 cup of mayonnaise) I also chill in the fridge for a couple of hrs. before serving. ** THIS IS A 5 STAR DISH ** (I would add more stars, but it won't let me) I wish I had a pic. to add. ~~ ENJOY.
This is an awesome dip....big winner every time I use it! Create a little ahead of time and the consistency is just fine!
