    Hey Jude's Note:

    Shrimp cocktail with a spicy twist! This is really easy to prepare ahead of time and have ready to put on the table when guests arrive. I found this in Southern Living, May 2005.

      Hey Jude, beautiful! I love the presentation! Didn't use the chilli powder - figured it had enough spice for my group! However, I served it next to the shrimp at each plate. The flavor is awesome it matches the pictures! The only thing I would change is I would add a bit more avocado & didn't use the tortilla chips (personal preference)didn't think it needed it with the wonderful sauce for dipping the shrimp! Thank you for a great recipe :) Diane

      Elegant and delicious. A perfect appetizer for a mexican or TexMex meal. The heat of the pepper with the coolness of avocado and shrimp was a great combination. I left the seeds in my pepper because we like the heat. Thanks for posting.
