Shrimp "Ceviche"

I love any kind of ceviche. Even if it isn't real ceviche. What do I mean? Well usually ceviche is made with raw fish or seafood that is cooked in lemon or lime juice. But when I make ceviche with shrimp I use cooked shrimp found in the freezer section. Super easy and tastes just as good. And the best thing about ceviche? You can change it up every time you make it so you will never get bored.

Shrimp Ceviche
Recipe by Kaci Uipi
(makes enough for 6-8 people as an appetizer)
20-30 pieces medium size shrimp, chopped in small pieces (I use 51-60 count that is cooked, peeled and deveined
found in a bag in the freezer section of any grocery store)
1 red bell pepper, minced 
1 cucumber, peeled, seeded, and minced
1/2 bunch cilantro leaves, minced
1/2 poblano chile, minced (or any kind chile you like...I like poblanos because they aren't that spicy)
1/4 red onion, minced
1 can (12 oz) tomato or clamato juice
juice from 2-3 limes
hot sauce, to taste
salt, to taste

Mix all the ingredients up in a bowl and serve with tortilla chips or on top of tostada shells.
