TURF AND SURF HAM AND SHRIMP DIP
1-pound cooked shrimp, tails removed and chopped into ½” dice
1, 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
½ cup mayonnaise
¼ cup sour cream
½ teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
1 cup leftover ham or ham steak, chopped into ½” pieces
1 jalapeño, minced
6 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
½ cup red bell pepper, chopped
½ cup scallions, chopped (plus more for garnish)
1 ½ cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 large bag pita chips
Chopped parsley for garnish
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Pat the shrimp with paper towels to remove any excess moisture.
Combine all of the ingredients, except for the pita chips and parsley, in a large bowl and mix well.
Prepare a small casserole dish or pie plate with non-stick cooking spray and spread the dip evenly in the dish. Bake for 20-25 minutes until hot and bubbly. Garnish with parsley and serve with pita chips on the side.
This dip is also yummy on toasted baguette slices or with tortilla chips!
