After the veggie and shrimp mixture has cooled, you’re ready to finish making the cheesy shrimp dip. 

recipe for hot shrimp dip

Pile the shrimp dip high into the cleaned and stemmed mushroom caps. A good trick so that they don’t roll around on the baking sheet, is to cut a thin piece from the bottom of mushroom so that it can stand upright without moving!
