SSS Shrimp Cocktail

The layered flavors in this take on a Tex Mex Shrimp Cocktail, SSS Shrimp Cocktail,  make it a stand out for any party, or a standout at a luncheon or appetizer for supper.  Quite honestly, this makes the perfect lunch after spending a morning on the beach as well.  A perfect marriage of Sweet (mango) and Sour (lime) with a wonderful compliment of a little Spice (red hot pepper jelly) make this a cocktail that will not soon be forgotten!

1/4 C hot red jalapeno pepper jelly

1/4 c chopped fresh cilantro
