Creamy Chipotle Shrimp Crostini

If you didn’t check out yesterday’s post, I explained how I’m entering the Saucy Mama’s Fab with Five Recipe Challenge this week. They sent 6 of their products, and although the contest was to come up with just one recipe using one of their products and having 5 ingredients or less (not including oil and salt/pepper), I decided to come up 5 recipes coming to you this week.  And the best part is that Saucy Mama is letting me have a giveaway and give away some of their products to one of Snappy Gourmet’s readers!  Enter the GIVEAWAY before time runs out!

The first recipe up is Creamy Chipotle Shrimp Crostini using Saucy Mama Santa Fe Creamy Chipotle Dressing.  The dressing is not overly spicy but has a nice chipotle flavor and creamy texture. It would be great as a salad dressing, drizzled over meat as a sauce, mixed into some scrambled eggs, and all sorts of other things! These Creamy Chipotle Shrimp Crostini are easy to make and a great appetizer, although my family liked them for a main dish! My kids even gobbled these right up!

Stay tuned for recipe #2 tomorrow!

Creamy Chipotle Shrimp Crostini

  • Olive oil
  • 1 (8oz.) package cream cheese, softened
  • ¾ cup SAUCY MAMA Santa Fe Creamy Chipotle Dressing, divided
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro, chopped; divided
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • 32 precooked large shrimp (about 1 lb), deveined & shell removed
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly brush both sides of baguette slices with oil. Arrange on baking sheet in single layer. Cook about 5-6 minutes on each side, or until toasted and golden brown. Cool.
  2. Meanwhile, mix together cream cheese, ½ cup chipotle dressing, ¼ cup cilantro, and salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Spread cream cheese/chipotle spread over baguette slices then top each with a shrimp. Drizzle remaining chipotle dressing on top and garnish with remaining cilantro.
Notes
SNAPPY TIPS: You can make the different components of this recipe ahead of time then just assemble before serving.

SNAPPY SUBSTITUTIONS: You could substitute one of SAUCY MAMA’s other sauces for the Sante Fe Creamy Chipotle Dressing. If you don’t like shrimp, thin slices of grilled beef would all work great.
