SNAPPY TIPS: Make sure the cream cheese is softened to room temperature to make it easy to combine. Instead of mixing by hand, you can also place the ingredients in a food processor and process until just combined. You can also add other ingredients such as minced jalapeno, chopped fresh cilantro, lime juice/zest, and/or minced red onion if you’re looking to add a little more to the spread.
SNAPPY SUBSTITUTIONS: You can use light/lowfat cream cheese. You can substitute crab, chicken, or other proteins for the shrimp.
