  • Heat oil in skillet or dutch oven. Sauté onion, celery and garlic over medium/low heat until tender; approximately 10 minutes.
  • Add tomatoes, tomato sauce, salt, sugar, chili powder, Worcestershire sauce and hot sauce. Simmer on medium/low heat, uncovered for 45 minutes. Stir occasionally to keep from sticking.
  • Mix cornstarch with water in small bowl. Stir into tomato mixture.
  • If serving immediately, add shrimp and pepper and cook for 8-10 minutes more (if shrimp is pre-cooked).
  • You may also prepare tomato mixture ahead, freeze, and when ready to eat, thaw, bring to a simmer and add the shrimp and peppers; heat through.
  • Serve over rice cooked according to package directions.
