Why I Love This Recipe

my cousin always makes this when we have family get togethers, and I have been trying to figure out the dip for years - I finally think I cracked the code, or at the very least, I now have my own version that I love!

Ingredients You'll Need

2 lbs peeled and deveined shrimp around 30 count per pound
2 beers - I use bud light
1 clove crushed garlic
1 package shrimp boil - would rather use old bay, but have the hardest time finding it around here

1 c mayo
2 T Chapala hot sauce
salt to taste


bring beer and shrimp boil to simmer, add shrimp.

watch shrimp carefully, until just cooked - they will turn white and curl

remove from heat, and pour off into colander, they will continue to cook a little, but you want them to stay nice and plump with just a hint of "crunch"

Mix mayo, hot sauce, and salt to taste, put in small dish.

Arrange shrimp around dip, and dig in!
