Sante Fe Shrimp Dip - MMMMM!

This one is a total crowd pleaser and GREAT for get-togethers.  I love hosting parties and making clean, healthy and delicious appetizers for everyone.  Party food does't have to be a waistline killer (just say NO to the velveta queso with ground beef - sodium and saturated fat OVERLOAD)

This is a simple, quick recipe you can whip up in 2 minutes - literally!  It came from a meal plan I was building for a clint that told me she loved hummus and needed a snack with hummus.  It was lacking the protein she needed with only the hummus, thus this yummy dip!

Tarrah's Sante Fe Shrimp Dip:


  • (2) 10oz. containers of hummus (try to get a regular flavor or blended flavor but not one with added oils, nuts, etc - these just add calories)
  • (1) 8oz jar of salsa - I LOVE World Table's 'Roasted Tomato Chipotle Rioja (from WalMart!) - adds an amazing flavor to the dip!
  • (1) 12oz bag frozen, pre-cooked shrimp (deveined and tails removed) can find at any grocer store
  • 1 avocado, chopped 
  • Mrs. Dash Fiesta Lime Seasoning
  • Bell Peppers and Cucumbers for Dipping

Thaw shrimp under cold water for 3 minutes.  Drain in a colander and dry on paper towels.  Combine the hummus, salsa and shrimp in a mixing bowl and stir until combined.  Add avocado and fold into hummus mixture.  Sprinkle with Mrs. Dash seasoning and serve with peppers and cucumbers - or 'Guiltless Gourmet Baked, no Sodium Added Tortilla Chips' - mmmm!
