Taco Shrimp Dip

Everyone loves a good shrimp taco. Everyone loves a good taco dip. I’ve put them together in this Taco Shrimp Dip with black beans, lettuce, cilantro sour cream, tomatoes and spicy shrimp.

You guys. This Dip. OMG THIS DIP. It is SO good I couldn’t wait to share it with you.

Several years back, 9 to be exact, I shared my recipe for Shrimp Tacos with Cilantro Lime Sour Cream. The reviews have been fabulous over the years and it got me thinking, what else could I do with Shrimp Tacos?

Everyone one loves a good shrimp taco. Everyone loves a good taco dip. I've put them together in this Taco Shrimp Dip with black beans, lettuce, cilantro sour cream, tomatoes and spicy shrimp.

Enter: Taco Shrimp Dip. It is all the goodness of shrimp tacos in dip form. I mean, shrimp tacos and chips? It doesn’t get much better.

How do you make Taco Shrimp Dip?

First things first, you’re going to need to cook the shrimp. Use larger shrimp and chop them up after cooking. The flavor is better than the smaller “salad shrimp”. I’ve been using the Wild Argentinian Shrimp lately. Guys, buy them if you can, they are like little lobsters! So tender and buttery.

Seasoned Shrimp for Taco Shrimp Dip

The seasoning that I use for the shrimp is the exact same that I use in my shrimp taco recipe. They are perfectly seasoned with just a little kick.

Easy Taco Shrimp Dip

Taco Shrimp Dip is basically like any other layered taco dip. First you layer refried black beans, then guacamole, then cilantro lime sour cream, lettuce, tomatoes and shrimp. Sounds good right?! I mean COME ON. So many good things.

Speaking of good things, let’s talk about the best shrimp taco sauce ever.

The best shrimp taco sauce:

Cilantro Lime Sour Cream is by far the best shrimp taco sauce. It is my favorite part of my shrimp taco recipe after all. So it only seemed natural to make it a layer in this taco shrimp dip. It’s pretty easy to make, you simply need to mix together sour cream, lime juice, lime zest and cumin. Easy peasy done.

The Best Shrimp Taco Sauce: Cilantro Lime Sour Cream

Like other taco dips, this taco shrimp dip is best served chilled. That means that you’ll need to cook the shrimp and then chill it before adding it to the dip. I make the whole thing in the morning, refrigerate it to let the flavors meld and serve it in the afternoon.

What do you serve with Taco Shrimp Dip:

This dip is hearty. This means that you are going to need a good sturdy chip so that you can lift all of the layers. I find the Mission Strips work well for this but use whatever you can find.
