½ pound cream cheese (softened)
⅓ cup cocktail sauce
2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
2 tablespoons chives (sliced, for garnish)
kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
butter crackers (to serve)
Thaw shrimp as per package instructions and dry well.
In the bowl of a food processor, add half of the cooked shrimp, cream cheese, prepared horseradish, and cocktail sauce.
