OK no bull, this is the best I have ever had. I made this last night and woke up this morning wanting more. It is so fresh with lots of onion and peppers. I think it's great for a hot summer day with a cold beer!! Add the crab and follow these direction to a T. Let me know if you do it and how it turns out for ya :wink:

Shrimp Cocktail
1/2 diced purple onion
1 diced med white onion
1 bunch diced green onoin
1/2 diced green and red bell pepper
2-3 diced jalapenos (more if you want)
3-4 diced med size red tomatos
3 diced reg size avocados
Cilantro to taste chopped up
1 1/2 cup ketchup (good kind)
1/2 cup Valentina hot sauce (more if you want really hot) and to
get the correct flavor you must use this brand."important"
Put ALL in large bowl and squeeze the juice of 2 limes into mixture
becareful not mash up avocados when mixing.
SHRIMP #3 lbs of peeled shrimp(bout 75-100) fresh is better
Bring to a boil 2 quarts of water,garlic,little salt,pepper and vegtables left over while preparing mixture(chopped off parts) .
Add shrimp for about 3-4 mins(dont take long)
Remove shrimp cool under running water to stop the cooking.
Save about 1/2 cup shrimp/veg stock and cool.
Add cool stock to above mixture.mix well
Add Shrimp...
Put in frig about 1-2 hrs and serve with Tortilla Chips
with cut up limes on the side to squeeze on each chip.
The limes are what set the flavor off.
For and extra twist you can also add REAL crab meat ,but add
it last so you want break it up while mixing

Get the Valentina hot sauce@ Food Town or HEB.. be sure to read lable
dont get extra hot..get hot. big tall bottle for under 2 bucks.
If you have ever been to Goode Company Seafood and got the Campachana cocktail this is darn close to theirs.
