Cocktail Sauce

Do any of your holiday plans call for seafood? Shrimp perhaps? I have to admit that I have a slight obsession with cocktail sauce.  I could literally eat it with anything.  I've been known to dip potato chips in it.  I know, there's something wrong with me.

Recently we had some friends over for some appetizers and drinks and this sauce was a hit.  My husband said it was one of the best he's tasted and I would agree.  Totally potato chip dip worthy, or shrimp, whatever.

This cocktail sauce has all the classic flavors you love in a good sauce.  The horseradish is prominent but not so overwhelming that you need to slam the nearest drink.  The chili sauce adds a bit of sweetness and the ketchup and Worcestershire just compliment all of the flavors.  Perfect!
