This is one of my favorite dips ever, and it’s really simple to make. It does make about twice as much as one would expect to set out at a party, so you could halve the recipe, or don’t make other dips.

  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 8 oz. package cream cheese
  • 1 package dry Italian seasoning mix
  • 1 can tiny deveined shrimp

Crush shrimp and blend together other ingredients, then chill before serving.
