      This was super easy and tasted just like what you would get in a restaurant. I used way less V-8 than called for as I didn't want it so soupy. I only used a 16 oz can. The red onion was a bit strong for me and next time I might try a Vidalia sweet onion instead. Thanks for posting it!!

      This was really good. I only added half of the spicy V-8 and it was still very soupy. May have found a new recipe....add all the v-8 and you have a delicious shrimp gazpacho!!! Very nice flavors!!!

      I'm Mexican and cook this almost the same exact way! I add a couple of diced tomatoes and a diced jalapeño. I also use yellow lemons instead of limes and add salt to taste. I don't do the cucumbers.
