  • Be sure to choose fresh seafood for the best flavor.
  • When selecting the potato chips, make sure to select a brand that is light and airy, not dense and thick.

  • Substitute the mayonnaise with plain Greek yogurt for a healthier option - the Greek yogurt will provide the same creamy texture without the added fat and calories.
  • Substitute the shrimp with cooked chicken for a more budget-friendly option - chicken is usually much more affordable than shrimp, so this is a great way to save money while still getting the same flavor.

Mexican Seafood Casserole Replace the mayonnaise with 1 cup of salsa and add 1 cup of corn, 1/2 cup of black beans, and 1/2 teaspoon of cumin. Top with crushed tortilla chips instead of potato chips.
