Shrimp Ceviche

We make this often. It is so good and easy. I know that ceviche is traditionally made using raw fish, but I don't want anyone to get sick. I think it is just as good using cooked shrimp.

8-10 tomatoes (finely diced)

2 white onions (finely diced)

1 anaheim chili (VERY finely diced)

1 bunch cilantro (leaves chopped)

1 lb. cooked shrimp (peeled, deveined and chopped up)

4-6 limes (juice only)

1-2 lemon (juice only)

salt as needed

garlic salt as needed

chips to serve with ceviche

Wash tomatoes and cilantro. Core the tomatoes and finely dice them (pico de gallo style). Finely dice the onion (removing skin). Take all the cilantro leaves and chop them up. Add the Anaheim chili after it is very finely diced. Chop up all the shrimp (minus the tails), and mix together. Add the citrus juice. I like to add a lot because the shrimp will soak it in. Put in a little bit of salt and garlic salt. Let sit in the refrigerator for 3 or more hours. Before serving you will need to add salt to taste. This is always a hit for any shrimp lover!
