Tanya is a San Diegan-turned San Franciscan who knows that one of the biggest shortfalls of living in the city is the lack of traditional mexican food… so she re-created one of her favorites.
The following has been Post Marked From Warm Kitchenette
I love San Francisco, and I have succumbed to the idea of sf style burritos in tin foil and the weird flat taco thing that you need to eat with chips, however I have a big problem with their idea of hot carrots (or shall I say lack there of). When a taqueria does have them they are most likely from a can with a ratio of 20 jalapeños to 1 carrot- super bummer…..so going over a few recipes and using my San Diego taste buds, I have concocted what I think are the most buenas zanahorias picantes out there!

What you need:
white onion
white vinegar
mexican dried oregano
red pepper flakes
Black peppercorns
a lot of crushed raw garlic
bay leafs
dash honey or agave
dash evoo
*all of the measurements are based on my desire for garlic, spicy goodness, so please adjust accordingly.


Step 1: Slice the carrot at a slant about 1/4″ thick, cut onion into 1/4″ slices, and slice jalapeños length wise leaving in seeds.

Step 2: The ratio I use for vinegar to water is 2:1, boil just the water and add your sliced carrots for about 1.5 min. remove from water and put in a container, arrange with onions. Leave carrot water in pot and add your vinegar.
Step 3: To the water/vinegar mixture add the remaining ingredients and allow to simmer for about 10min.

Step 4: Pour the hot mixture over the carrots and you are done!

    I’d win wife-of-the-year award For Sure if I made & kept this in the refrigerator {will be making very soon}… Just said this on twitter, but this is such a great idea for a blog. Sharing ideas/posts/people/pics is my favorite thing about blogging (hence- my blog name “a place to share” =)), and I look forward to to meeting new bloggers and getting new ideas from this new space!

    once you have made the mixture and have it in a jar how long do you wait for it to pickle? I made mine yesterday 1/24/14 and used a giant dill pickle jar
