Mexican Shrimp Dip Recipe

Our family tried a shrimp cocktail at a Mexican restaurant and we liked it so much that I duplicated it at home. I now make this dip at least once a month. —Romona Rutherford, Tahlequah, Oklahoma

"Finally got to try this recipe. I added more avocadoes (4), had to use V8 because I didn't have tomato juice, omitted green pepper, used Pace picante sauce, Tapatio sauce, and bottled lemon juice. This recipe is forgiving, and all my picky eaters loved it and polished it all off during the football game yesterday !! This one was rated 5 plus stars, and that says alot !!! Thank you for the recipe !!"

"Haven't tried this recipe yet, but could the two previous reviewers print their whole recipe? I would like to try both ways and choose. Do you leave the basic recipe the same and add tapatio sauce or omit the salsa and ketcup altogether ? Thanks for writing back if you do !"

"Needed lemon and cucumber. I didn't care for the green pepper. I should have added Tapatio instead of the salsa or picante as recipe suggested."

"We also add Tapatio Sauce (found in most Mexican sections of grocery stores) and a cucumber and the juice of a whole lemon and less salsa and more made from scratch salsa...."
