  • 1 Can 3.75 oz smoked oysters
  • 2 Tablespoons heavy cream or sour cream
  • 1 Package 8 oz Cream Cheese, room temperature.
  • ¼ Teaspoon Tabasco Original Red Sauce*
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chopped Chives or green onions to garnish OPTIONAL


  • Place smoked oyster in your blender with the 2 tablespoons of heavy cream. Mix well until you have a chunky texture or if you prefer until very smooth.
  • Gently mix the cheese until it has a creamy texture.
  • Add the oyster mix and Tabasco Sauce. Mix until all the ingredients are well combined.
  • Season with salt and pepper. Taste it spreading some of the dip over a cracker or piece of toasted bread. And if needed add more Tabasco Salsa, as I do. Yum! Serve with crackers, veggies or toast.


  • * ¼ teaspoon of Tabasco Sauce might seem like a lot to some, but the cream cheese helps the flavor blend and creates the perfect combination.
  • If you prefer, you could use Tabasco Jalapeño or Habanero Sauce. It gives the dip a new twist in flavor.
  • This dip is ideal for your Holiday gatherings since you can make it ahead of time or just in a few minutes while you entertaining your guest.
