This shrimp dip is simple and delicious. It can be made with fresh or canned shrimp and tastes equally delicious with either. Cook's Note: The green onion dip mix that is available in my local store is made to be mixed with 8 ounces of sour cream, not a full pint. Read the label on your onion dip. If your packet of dip mix says to mix it with 16 ounces, you will need to double the recipe or use only half of the packet of dip mix.
Ingredients
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ½ block cream cheese softened
  • 1 package of green onion dip mix
  • ½ cup baby shrimp, or 1 (4 ounce can) medium shrimp, drained
Instructions
  1. Allow cream cheese to soften at room temperature.
  2. Mix sour cream, cream cheese, and green onion dip together until well mixed.
  3. Stir in the shrimp.
  4. Place into serving bowl, and garnish with shrimp and sliced green onions.
  5. Allow to chill for 1 -2 hours before serving to allow flavor to fully develop.
  6. Serve with corn chips, and/or celery stalks for dipping.
