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! Read More

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. Read More

Although it looks kind of weird, it tastes good. I like spicier, so I added some shakes of cayenne, hot sauce and some pickled jalapeños. I think a fresh jalapeño would be great in it. I used small frozen shrimp that I thawed. I wish I hadn't chopped them so much; it would have been nicer to have larger chunks. Read More
