Taqueria Style Pickled Jalapenos and Carrots

Taqueria Style Pickled Jalapenos and Carrots

I’ve had a craving for Mexican food for a few days so I decided to make some tacos for dinner. When looking for recipe ideas, I stumbled upon a recipe at Simply Scratch for these taqueria style pickled jalapenos & carrots and knew they would be a terrific condiment for the tacos but also great to have on hand for other Mexican favorites like tostadas, enchiladas, and nachos. I loved that these are quick refrigerator pickled veggies so I don’t have to worry about doing the canning process.  This recipe was easy to make and the pickled jalapenos, carrots, and onions tasted amazing on our pork tacos.

Add the jalapeno, carrots, and garlic halves. Cook, stirring often, for 1 minute. Add the vinegar, water, salt, and bay leaf. Simmer for a few minutes, until the veggies start to soften and turn color. Remove from the heat.
