A refreshing and authentic Mexican shrimp cocktail with plenty of spicy flavors makes a perfect starter or a light meal on a hot summer day. Serve it chilled with saltine crackers on the side.

My boyfriend flipped over these. They are easy enough that you can add or skimp on ingredients and they are virtually fool proof. Add more sweet or spicy ingredients at your leisure. This is a surefire hit!
