Yummy!  That sounds wonderful.  I sometimes add shrimp to my pico de gallo, but I never thought about adding clamato, ketchup or tomato juice. Awesome, I will try this recipe, so I am subscribing to your blog to keep your recipe.  I love Las Cruces as well.  My brother in law sold a business there a couple of years ago on La Muesula (spelling).   It was called Dromos.  Happy Memorial Day.

See, and I just learned something new myself, because I never thought of adding shrimp to my pico de gallo. It makes sense though, since all the ingredients in pico are basically found in shrimp cocktail...Great idea!! Thanks!
