- 16 ounce cream cheese softened
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 pound bacon cooked crispy & crumbled
- 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon chives chopped
- 12 ounces shrimp cooked & chopped I used SeaPak Shrimp Scampi
- 1 cup+ 1 tablespoon finely shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 cup+ 1 tablespoon finely shredded Monterey Jack cheese
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Cook & crumble the bacon. Set aside 2 tablespoons and place in a seperate bowl for later. Add the remaining bacon into a medium-sized bowl. Add in softened cream cheese and sour cream. Mix until well combined, I used a hand mixer. Once well combined stir in 1/2 cup chives, set aside.
Prepare your shrimp, follow the SeaPak package directions for the shrimp that you picked. Once cooked, roughly chop up the shrimp into medium chunks, add shrimp to cream cheese mixture and stir it in along with 1 cup of cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese and mix well.
Spoon into serving pan, you could really use anything you have just make sure dip is about 1 inch deep, or you may need to adjust cooking time. Cover with foil and bake for 25 minutes. Remove foil and add remaining cheese and chives then bake for another 10 minutes or until hot and bubbly and the cheese had a golden edge around the pan.
Remove from oven and serve with crackers, chips or vegetables.
