Layered Shrimp Dip

I made tray after tray of this appetizer for customers.  I always boiled fresh shrimp for use on this dish, but you can certainly use the canned if you wish.  Just make sure you drain the cans well.  This appetizer is always a hit and looks so pretty.  The original recipe did not call for the peppers, but they really finish the looks off of this yummy dish!  Be sure and prepare the day of serving, it does not hold well overnight.

1 8 ounce Cream cheese, softened
2 Cans Tiny shrimp, drained well
3  Bunches green onions, chopped
1  bottle Cocktail Sauce, chilled
1  small can of black olives, sliced
 Mozzarella cheese, grated
Roasted Red Peppers -chopped Opt

Spread the softened cream cheese on the serving plate.  Spread to the edges of the plate. Layer in the following order: cocktail sauce, shrimp, cheese, green onions, and olives and peppers.  Chill.  Serve with tortillia chips, or crackers.
