Well. This is a little bit of all my favorites in one spot!

Savory? Check.
Zesty? Yes.
Creamy? YUP!
Shrimp? Roger that.
Avocado? Is that even a question…?
Bacon? HECK. YES.

And not to mention…easy! See, I told you it was all my faves. This is absolutely going on my summer party menu. That is, if I can stop introverting long enough to actually have parties…it may just be me and 3 dogs with the occasional teenager and husband. But hey, more shrimp for me!
