Yummy Tasty Dips

Today I am participating in BooMama's DipTacular '11. I encourage you to visit her blog to get lots of new dip recipes. There is sure to be loads of cream cheese and deliciousness just waiting for you! Here are a couple of my favorites:

Cheese Ring

1 lb sharp cheddar cheese (grated and allowed to soften)
1 cup chopped pecans
1 small onion, grated (if using a strong onion you may want to just use half)
1 cup mayo
1 jar strawberry preserves

Combine all the ingredients except the preserves. It works best if you mix with your hands. The heat from your hands helps to mix everything together. If you have a circular mold, you can put it in it. (Be sure to spray the mold first) I usually just free form a circular ring on a plate. Cover with plastic wrap and put in the refrig. Let it get good and cold. When you are ready to serve place the strawberry preserves in the center of the ring. Serve with your favorite cracker.

When you eat it, be sure that you get the strawberry preserves and the cheese in the same bite. Be ready to do your happy dance because your mouth is going to go crazy! Yummy, Yummy!

Shrimp Dip

1/2 stick butter
1 (8 oz) cream cheese
1 Tbsp Worcestershire
1 tsp. lemon juice
1/4 tsp garlic salt
1 medium onion, chopped
1 lb boiled shrimp, chopped

Cream butter, cream cheese, mayo, Worcestershire, lemon juice and garlic salt. Add onion and cooked shrimp. Refrigerate before serving. Serve with your favorite cracker. Very tasty!
