Gulf Coast Guacamole Dip

Recipe by  

"An award winning dip that's festive and a big hit with avocado fans. Most feedback was based on the shrimp. It threw everyone for a loop and added an unexpected flavor and texture. Try substituting canned shredded crab meat if you're a crab lover. You can vary the ingredients to taste and based on how large the avocados are. My dip has never come out the same way twice, but always a big hit! "

I substituted Rotel Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies for the picante sauce and added Slap Ya Mama Cajun Seasoning (Louisiana) for the seasoned salt. In addition, I drained & rinsed the shrimp prior to adding. Super good!

WOW - what a surprise...very tangy, nice bite (albeit mild) and great texture. From the discriminating chef to the frozen meal gourmet, all my guests loved it making it one of few universal crowd pleasers in my recipe collection. I made no alterations and prepared the dip exactly as described in the recipe...can't think of anything I would have changed. BTW, photo doesn't due it justice. Mine came out a pale green and not the strange brown color in the picture.
