I'm so glad to find this recipe. I had a great gazpacho recipe years ago that was similar. Add some minced fresh garlic to this soup for extra flavor. YUM!

5 stars, but I didn't use V8 I used a Good Bloody Mix(Daily's Thick and & Spicy), and Cholula on the side for those that like a extra kick

Traditional mexican shrip coctail uses ketchup and this recipe uses V8 which is a healthier option. I like to mix the two since I'm not a big V8 fan.
