SuperBowl Inspired Cajun Shrimp Dip

You can’t have a Super Bowl party without dip and chips. Believe me, try it and you will see! 30 minutes into the game and you will have hungry insane men yelling “Where is the dip, Where are the chips!!!! Okay, so they might not yell at you and they may or may not be insane (remains questionable), but they ARE going to want chips and dip and they aren’t going to be satisfied with the lure of a simple nice bowl of chili instead. Sure they want their chili or chicken wings or burgers or whatever you have in mind for the main but want they really want before-during and after the game- IS THE DIP AND CHIPS!

If you are anything like myself, although a lover of Velvetta, that ship has been sailed and lost at sea for me. I am tired of it and any variation of it to be exact. You can’t fool me with sausage and hamburger additions or even salsa instead of Rotel. I need a break Velveeta! It’s time for a new start to shine and it so happens I have that star right here! MY CAJUN SHRIMP DIP! The evening I made this dip the oh so inclement weather of ours was acting up and it was all I could do to take these halfway decent shots but don’t let the lack of perfect lighting in the picture fool you. It is absolutely amazing. It jumps at you like your husband jumping out of his chair when the first touchdown has been scored. It jumps out with flavors of joy like roasted minced shrimp, fresh lemon juice, Cajun seasonings, creamy cream cheese, a hint of hot sauce and a dash of cilantro all mixed into a nice creamy yet meaty dip. It is out of this world for seafood lovers and I hope you will get a chance to try it this for your next Super Bowl Party.

  1. HI Jessica! This is so perfect for the Super Bowl, and you are so right – we need to add a dip with chips on the menu for the game.
    We usually make sandwiches, lasagna, and salads ( sounds boring, I know). Have a great week! xxoo Anna and Liz

  2. YUM! Pass the spoon over please!
    This would be great to make some sandwiches for the lunch too.

  4. We’re not having anyone over and still my husband wants dip! I’ve been sending him links (as I will yours) asking which one he wants me to make. This sounds pretty fantastic to me!

  5. This looks awesome. I love cilantro with sea food, it gives a kick that no other herb can do. Sure will try this next time.

  6. My Velveeta ship sailed too…Although, I am still sometimes teased because my name is similar (laugh).

    The dip looks good. I guess there are somethings like chips, dips and wings that are just expected on Superbowl Sunday.

  11. I know it’s a bit weird but I can’t stand velveeta or any other ‘fake’ cheese, there is an overwhelmingly plastic flavour to me. The cajun shrimp dip sounds like a perfect combo for the Super Bowl game. Love it Jessica.

  13. Even I can’t watch a football game without dip and chips, but mostly because I need something to bored-eat! This dip looks fabulous!

  14. Your are so right. This dip must jump with flavor. I would say this is a real man pleaser (and ladies too).
