My Dad's Famous Shrimp Dip

This is a family and friend favorite.  Perfect for all the parties and events coming up this summer!  It's easy to put together, but wonderfully delicious.  My dad has always loved making this dip and serving it at any and all large gatherings since I was a little kid.  It 'makes a party'.  I've recently made it for some church functions and it's been a hit.  The pans have almost been licked clean.  Such a simple recipe for so much flavor.  I could happily eat a pan myself. Serve with tortilla chips (almost all are GF)! Enjoy!!!

Shrimp Dip!  It's difficult to take pictures of layered dips, but the glass pan gives you a good idea of what the dip looks like.  Enjoy! 

Dad's Famous Shrimp Dip
Makes one 8" x 8" pan

In a glass 8" x 8" pan, spread the following, in order as listed below:
1/2 cup cocktail sauce
1 - 1 1/2 cups shrimp (cooked, peeled, deveined & diced if they're not tiny salad shrimp)
1 cup sour cream (best to scoop tiny scoops over the top, then spread)
1 - 1/2 cups grated medium cheddar cheese

Chill the dip 3-4 hours, or overnight.  Best served with tortilla chips, although you can use other crackers or chips, if desired.  Enjoy!
Cocktail sauce with fresh, chopped shrimp on top.  Ready to spread sour cream and cheese on top. Yum!
