My friend Margie made the most delicious Shrimp Cocktail the other day. She got the recipe from Matt Martinez Mex-Tex Cookbook. I’ve halved the recipe and made a couple of minor alterations. It is so easy and so delicious!

Don’t get me wrong, the kids thought these were GREAT. I just know they can be so much better with the little lessons learned.
