Celebrate Las Posadas With This Easy Mexican Shrimp Cocktail Recipe!
Las Posadas is such a great holiday. It helps me and my family put focus on the real reason for the season. To me Christmas is about the birth of our Savior and also about family, friends and loved ones. During the holiday season I try to spend as much time as I possibly can with my loved ones. Especially for Las Posadas which is a holiday that is centered around family and friends.
I love the tradition of visiting family members houses during #LasPosadas. It is a great time to catch up and make memories but is also a great time to eat some amazing food. Thanks to #HERDEZ I am always able to create a great dish for my family and loved ones. This year I decided to make Mexican Shrimp Cocktail! It is a family favorite and something extra special for Las Posadas!
- 2 lbs Jumbo Shrimp (cooked)
- 3 medium tomato diced
- 2 cucumbers seeded and sliced
- 1 small white onion diced
- 1/2 cup finely chopped cilantro
- 2 avocados diced
- 2 jalapeno seeded and diced
- Juice of 2 limes
- 2 cups Tomato or Vegetable Juice
- 1/4 c HERDEZ® Salsa Verde
- Sea Salt & Black Pepper (to taste)
– Serve with Tortilla Chips
1. Add all ingredients (except tortilla chips) into large bowel. Season with Salt & Pepper and stir together. Chill
2. Serve in some type of stylish glassware 🙂
3. Add cooked shrimp. I usually put a few of the shrimp in the glass and a few of them on the rim for design. I also add some extra sliced lime to the rim for looks.
4. Serve with tortilla chips and enjoy!
The HERDEZ® Salsa Verde is such a great addition to this Mexican Shrimp Cocktail and is kinda like the secret ingredient that everyone asks about. It just adds the kick and flavor that pairs up so nice with this cocktail.
