"Surprise your guests with this delicioso appetizer! This Mexican shrimp cocktail begins any taco, enchilada, burrito, or tostada night with a bang! Don't expect to have anything left over but an empty dish. Try it without the shrimp for those who don't like seafood. Serve with saltine crackers or tortilla chips as an alternative! Enjoy!"

I have made something like this with the exception of one ingredient. My recipe calls for Chili Sauce (looks like ketchup) instead of salsa. Actually I made it for my family after a friend broug...

This is a great recipe. I have made a similar one before but could not find the recipe. The only change is that I made mine without ketchup but used chili sauce. This is great with either salt...

Just like on the beach in Mexico, I made it exactly as the recipe states and it is perfect!

This is almost like I make mine minus the garlic and salsa verde. Gotta have Tapatio and ketchup, too. I also add cucumber and imitation crab meat to mine. Must eat with saltines.
