Norma "Nana" WeltonThis recipe comes from Nana's Recipes which is the website of Norma "Nana" Welton - you can visit the website by clicking here.

David Welton, her son, describes Nana's website as follows:

"Easy to prepare "home cooking with flair" recipes from a Grandmother who loves to cook! Pictures and detailed recipes of chocolate desserts, cakes, pies, cookies, salads, entrées, side dishes and more."


1/2 lb. fresh salad shrimp drained
1 (8 oz.) pkg. of creamed cheese (regular or low fat)
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 cup of Best Foods Real Mayonnaise
1 large bag of Frito Lay's Ruffles potato chips

  • In a medium size bowl beat mayonnaise and creamed cheese with electric hand beater until smooth. Add garlic powder and continue beating.
  • Add well drained shrimp and continue beating until shrimp is broken into small pieces and mixture appears smooth. Additional mayonnaise can be added to allow chips to be dipped easily.
  • Cover bowl with plastic wrap, place in refrigerator. Can be left in refrigerator for several hours or served immediately.

Nana's Tip:
I find the third less fat Ruffles tastier than the regular Ruffles.
