Authentic Mexican Shrimp Cocktail (Coctel de Camarones estilo Mexicano)

Authentic Mexican Shrimp Cocktail (Coctel de Camarones estilo Mexicano)

Mexican Sweetheart

"I prepare this refreshing shrimp cocktail for my family a lot during the hot summer days. Being a Mexican family, we always add Mexican hot sauce (such as Valentina® or Tapatio®) and serve with saltine crackers on the side. The trick is to start with well-chilled shrimp, ketchup, and tomato juice cocktail so it can be ready after only chilling 1 hour in the fridge. Top with additional hot sauce and avocado slices if desired. Enjoy!"

This was my first time ever making Mexican Shrimp Cocktail, my Mexican boyfriend requested it. I doubled the Clamato, added 1/2 cup of onion instead of 1/3 cup, and added 1 clove minced garlic. ...

I like spicy, but this over powered the flavor. I would use half the pepper and half the jalapeño
