Spicy Pickled Onions and Veggie Condiments

Spicy is one of the preferred flavors in my library of taste, I reach for it and crave it more often than not. This is not a trait I was born with, but a preference I developed. Spice comes to me in an assortment of ways, and pickling happens to be a tradition both sides of my family have enjoyed for years. My Great Grandma Presley use to make her own pickles, and my Grandfather Sandoval always ate a pickled huerito chile with his sandwich. My pickling recipe is a mish mash of many flavors pulled from my upbringing and travels rolled into one.  I used onions and veggies for this pickling and added a Red Savina Habanero Pepper from Melissa’s Produce to bring on the heat. Now my sandwiches, fish and chips, hamburgers, tacos…. will be complete.

1 – Red Savina Habanero Pepper

  1. Great idea! I thought of adding a pinch of sugar, too, to make it a sweet-tangy pickle. Gotta try this!

  2. Pingback: Hotter than a hussy sitting in church on Sunday morning, bless her soul. Hot like a cat on a hot tin roof. Hot enough to burn a polar bear's butt.

  5. Those are some gorgeous peppers! Habaneros are still a little too spicy for my tastbuds, but I would not mind eating the rest of the pickled goodies in the jar. 😉

    My nalgas are still burning from this! I like the idea of watermelon to tame down the heat. That or a fire hose.

  10. Oh, dear. I can feel the heat just reading this. My husband would love these spicy pickles. But, alas, I am a true weenie when it comes to anything spicy.

    I had an unfortunate experience with a Habanero, but you are making me reconsider my reluctance to give it another shot.

    I’ve got to be the only Mexicana that doesn’t like chile or onions but i happen to be married to a man that loves all things Mexican including me HA! I will have to try this for him.
