This Company Peas recipe continues to be one of my absolute favorites. The first “company” meal I prepared as a new bride almost forty years ago marked the premier of this recipe.
It still brings rave reviews from family, friends and, well, company.
2 cans very young small sweet peas, drained
1 can cream of mushroom soup
8 oz. Kraft Cheez Whiz
½ – ¾ tsp. garlic powder (according to personal taste)
¼ – ½ tsp. black or white powder (according to personal preference)
salt to taste
1 can tiny shrimp, drained
In a large saucepan, mix peas and mushroom soup together over medium heat. When heated through, add Cheez Whiz, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
Stir well and reduce heat to medium low. Once the Cheez Whiz is melted, add the drained shrimp.
Allow shrimp to completely heat through over medium low to low heat, stirring to prevent cream ingredients from scorching, sticking or burning.
