1 can of tiny shrimp

1 jar of cocktail sauce (use half)

Mix together the shrimp and half a jar of the cocktail sauce in a bowl. Spread the softened cream cheese on a small platter or pie pan about 1/2-inch thick, and pour the shrimp mixture over the cream cheese. Spread it with a knife on the crackers. That's it!
