Auntie Emlou's Seafood Cocktail Sauce!

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Chef PotPie

She never really got around to showing me how to make it, but I know what I like, and this is how I make it. It tastes just like my dear Great Auntie's! YUM! When I say chili sauce, please get a chili sauce such as Heinz, not an Asian hot chili sauce. It will be in your grocery with all the other condiments.

This is a delicious cocktail sauce! I made as posted, and then added a bit more horseradish. Just love that bite with boiled shrimp. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT.
