This dish had amazing flavor! We like hot and spicy foods, so I actually used 2 1/2 serranos (next time, I'd use 3),then I followed the recipe for the other peppers (I used poblano vs. ancho). Then, I added cayenne pepper and crushed red pepper, and it still wasn't "hot", but it had a great, rich taste and a nice kick. I used one whole sweet onion, and I did add the full amount of catsup. I served it with yellow, spanish rice, refried beans and fresh tortillas. I just can't say enough about the wonderful flavor of this sauce and the shrimp! This is definitely our new fave shrimp dish!
