I love appetizers and a good dip is among my favorite. I even make meals out of them because it’s a fun foodie experience to make a meal out of a snack. Are any of y’all the same way?

When I go out to a restaurant with friends, we usually love to order several different appetizers to share between us – and take bites of each thing as we catch up with each other. This is also something that I love to do at home too. I definitely don’t save it just for restaurants!

Today I want to share with you one of my personal favorite dips – my Easy Baked Shrimp Dip.

How do I prepare this recipe?

You can find the printable recipe at the bottom of this post. There is also a video of me making this dip right above the printable recipe!

It’s super easy! Here’s what you do..

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

Mix together the cream cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream, 3/4 cup cheddar cheese, 3/4 cup pepper jack (or Monterey Jack) cheese, old bay seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, and hot sauce until smooth. I like to use a handheld mixer for this. Stir in the shrimp, garlic, & green onions.

Spoon the mixture into a baking dish (I use a 2 quart baker or a pie dish) and top with the remaining cheddar and pepper jack cheese.

Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the dip is bubbly and heated through.

Serve hot.

You can also mix all these ingredients in a sauce pot, add enough milk to thin it out – and serve it mixed in with pasta for one amazing Cheesy Shrimp Pasta dish.
