Hot Shrimp Dip

The moving trucks come in less than a week!  I am obviously cooking to 'use up' all the food in our refrigerator and freezer, but I highly doubt there are many of you out there doing the same. Instead, this is a recipe that you could use for that Sunday football party or a great Halloween party dip!  The red bell pepper I put in there more for looks than flavor.  I love the little red pieces it adds to the visual presentation.  You could leave them out if you don't care.  Or you could substitute a bit of green pepper, some spinach or even tiny diced tomatoes.
