Introduction: Mexican Shrimp Cocktail
Materials: ( the amount of ingredients depend on how much you want to make.) This recipe serves about 7-9 people.
-2 bags of large shrimp
-2 jalapeño (medium size)
-Hot sauce ( any kind is fine but I personally use Louisiana Hot Sauce)
-1 cup of water
-3 cans of 8 oz. tomato sauce
-limes (if needed)
-crackers or chips for the side
Empty out the bags of shrimp into a container and rinse with lukewarm water so they thaw out. If they have tails or skin take them off after they have completely thawed out.
Cut the onion, tomato, and jalapenos into diced size pieces. Cut the cilantro leaves in half.
Add all the "Chopped" ingredients, not the shrimp yet, to the bowl.
Now get another bowl.
Pour the water, hot sauce, ketchup, and tomato sauce in the bowl and mix. To get the liquid to taste less like tomato, add more water and hot sauce.
Now add the liquid to the first bowl with the onion and rest of the ingredients and mix again.
The shrimp should be ready now. If you want to get more filling, cut the shrimp in halves or thirds. Add them to the bowl.
Now get the avocados and slice them and put them on top of the cocktail or mix them in.
Chill itn in the refrigerator if needed. Get some crakers or chips to go on the side.
