Cilantro Lime Shrimp with Avocado Cream Cheese Spread

This week, I have been busy brainstorming and testing appetizer recipes for The Real Women of Philadelphia contest. Yesterday, I nailed it with this cilantro lime shrimp crostini with an avocado cream cheese spread. In fact, I have to admit I ate the whole thing by myself! I convinced myself it was okay, since Mike doesn't like seafood, but, who am I am I kidding? Even if he did, I was NOT sharing.

The star of this dish, surprisingly, was the avocado cream cheese spread. I promise you I am not trying to win points, since it is a Philadelphia cream cheese contest. This combination really worked! The spread was really thick, rich, tangy and filled with itty-bitty chunks of avocado. It was the perfect marriage.

So, even if my appetizer isn't chosen as one of the winners, I hope you all get a chance to make this. I made more of the spread with the leftover half of avocado and spread it on a toasted bagel this morning. HEAVEN!

You can get the easy-to-make recipe on my RWOP profile. Wish me luck!
