These Cheesy Blackened Shrimp & Corn Bites are simply delish and
perfect for summer entertaining!
I absolutely love summer entertaining. First of all, it gives me the opportunity to plan something creative with a theme, decorations, and recipes. And then, of course, there’s the actual event I get share with friends and loved ones. I’m always looking for tasty new appetizers to serve at my gatherings.
La Victoria asked me to create a recipe with their Mango Habanero Salsa, and my creative juices immediately started flowing! Years ago I made a cheesy corn bites appetizer that’s always been one of my faves. I decided to update it to make it even more flavorful and delicious!
I settled on adding blackened shrimp, cilantro, and LA VICTORIA® Mango Habanero Salsa to the original cheesy corn bites recipe. It was quick and easy to put together and I PROMISE you will love this!
To create this recipe, you’ll simply need scoop-shaped corn chips, corn, cream cheese, Mexican cheese blend, an egg, shrimp, blackened seasoning, cilantro and the Mango Habanero Salsa.
Remove from oven. Top with Mango Habanero Salsa and cilantro.
The salsa is both sweet and spicy… a combo of deliciousness in these Cheesy Blackened Shrimp & Corn Bites!
