Shrimp Cocktail Layered Party Spread

title
Okay, so I’m going to come clean right off the bat and say that I do not give a rip for the Super Bowl. I mean, you are talking to the girl who once asked (in all sincerity) what day of the week the Super Bowl lands on.
But I have been loving all of the dip and party food recipes flooding blogs everywhere that are inspired by the upcoming Super Bowl, so I in turn have felt inspired to add MY favorite party food to the fray!
My husband and I discovered this recipe a few years ago in a Washington State cookbook, where it is listed as a favorite recipe from the Spokane Yacht Club. The dip was originally called “Surprise Spread” and we found it ridiculously addicting and beyond simple to put together. This is officially my new favorite way to eat a shrimp cocktail!
The spread should be enough for a party, but it’s so tasty, two adults can easily polish off half the plate if they are hungry enough. (Go on, ask me how I know! Hehe..)
So anyway, if you’re looking for a dip / spread that is not the traditional bean or cheese dip, give this Shrimp Cocktail Spread a try!

    Oh, it’s a cold one, for some reason I thought of a warm dip. Maybe I was longing for warm because it is so cold here lately. In any case, it sounds very delicious.
    Favorite party food? Hmmm, there are so many. One that keeps re-appearing, not a typical party-food is chili with cornbread.

    Ok, so I’m a little late to the Super Bowl party, but hey, I can eat dip anytime. My husband loves shrimp, although I struggle with how to prepare it! Anything with cheese on top pretty much wins my heart. So there’s no reason this can’t be my Valentine’s Day dip.

    Don’t care about the Superbowl too (and Grammys as of this comment hahahaha) but DO WANT TO TRY THAT DIP!! Sold just by seeing there’s that much cheese in it. I would love to try that very soon, and it looks doable bec all those ingredients I’ve seen them here hahaha.

    The chips though, is it Tostitos?

      Yeah! I actually love Tostitos.. though my new favorite is a brand called “Across the Border”.. do you have that there??

        No I don’t think we have that particular brand here 🙁 so, Tostitos for now. Eep, craving!
