(Most Cream Cheese doesn’t contain and has not been processed on equipment shared by soy, nut, egg, shellfish, or wheat. It also shouldn’t have too much sugar or salt, but please read ingredient lists)

Prep Time: 5 min (if things are thawed) 30-60 min (if things are not thawed).

Items Needed:

-M-L Mixing bowl

-Strainer

-Gloves (optional)

-Plates

-Knife

-Cutting board

-Spoon

Prep:

1. Wash hands and tools.

2. Thaw shrimp (submerging it in cold water can help speed up the process).

3. Strain the shrimp (rinse if desired). Then place into a mixing bowl.

4. Allow the cream cheese to thaw. This can take up to 30min if it has been in the fridge overnight. You can microwave it in a microwave safe bowl (most that are safe are BPA Free please double check) for 15-30 seconds a block depending on wattage if short on time.

5. Rinse plastic if recycling or repurposing.

6. Put on gloves (optional).

Make Time: 10-20 min.

Make:

1. Chop chives into small pieces (about two handfuls) then place into a mixing bowl(the larger the bowl the easier it is to mix without spilling on the counters).

2. Rinse the knife then slice open the avocados into halves. Discard seed or save for planting. Place 1-2 halves onto plates.

3. Put the 2 softened blocks of cream cheese into a mixing bowl (the larger the bowl the easier it is to mix without spilling on the counters).

4. Add the garlic salt. I do 3 dashes of garlic salt (due to the strong flavor of the brand I use), but you can adjust to personal taste.

5. Add Old Bay Seasoning. I do about 6-10 shakes (not very much comes out of my container). Adjust for personal taste.

6. Mix with your hands to get an even spread of cream cheese and spices. Add extra/adjusted seasonings afterwards to your personal taste.

7. Wash your hands or throw away the gloves.

8. Put 1-2 large spoonfuls into the avocado centers.

9. Enjoy.
