TACO PICKLES

A PICKLED VEGETABLE RECIPE TO ADD TANG TO YOUR TACO


A while back I went to a Mexican restaurant named Mile Marker Fifteen and had my first taco with pickled vegetables.  At first, I thought this is a mistake, they may have given me someone else’s order.  When I asked, they explained that this was the correct order and that the pickled veggies automatically come on that particular type of taco I had chosen.  Now I’ve watched those food truck shows that have all the crazy different types of tacos out there but this was totally unexpected…  

I finally decided to muster up the courage to try it because I was starving and didn’t want to deal with the hassle of re-ordering and waiting.  I closed my eyes and took and bite while my husband stared at me in awe.  I muddled it around and allowed the essence of each ingredient to come together and then something magical happened, my eyes widened and I couldn’t believe it, I was hooked!  It was tangy, sweet, spicy, and an absolute food revelation!

Shortly after, I began to ask myself how did I not know about this amazing flavor combination?  Why hasn’t anyone mentioned this before?  I mean I’m pretty easy when it comes to food and I somewhat call myself a foodie but this made me feel as though I knew nothing of food and had been walking in the dark this whole time.  Well, folks, I’m here to brighten your path and pass on the word,  that’s right!  I here to tell you that taco pickles are a game changer and the greatest part is you don’t have to know anything about pickling!  This isn’t your typical pickling recipe, it’s a quick pickle recipe that marinates in your fridge over night and then whallah they’re ready to go!

    • Hi Suzanne,

      I apologize for not putting that down in the recipe for you. Sugar is 1/4 of a cup. 1/2 cup of white vinegar and 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar. Let me know how it turns out!

  • Cold days like these make me want to cozy up with a warm blanket and look through sunny photos of past vacations while day dreaming up our next adventure together. 
Last year, my husband and I visited St. John and The British Virgin Islands and we had such an amazing time that I decided  to surprise him by capturing our favorite vacation moments with a custom photo book. 
Luckily, @google photos just launched a new photo book feature so I decided to try it out and I couldn’t believe how easy it was to create. It literally took minutes to put it together! 
If you have an anniversary, birthday, or “just because” dates coming up I would definitely recommend adding your own personal touch with one of these keepsakes!

  • Finally got out and about after being sick for the last few days and found the most delicious tile pattern on the way to my car. This was someone’s walkway leading up to their home (don’t mind if I do). So glad no one was there 🤫 but I had to share because it was the perfect reminder that beauty can be found in the most unexpected places. I hope your day was filled with beauty loves! ✨

P.S. You can now shop my looks over @liketoknow.it 🤗 Simply screen shot the photo and follow me in the #liketoknowit app!
  • Really looking forward to the weekend and a little sunshine because it’s been raining here non-stop! ☔️ I’ve def gotten my money’s worth out of my @hunterboots this week, but now I’m ready for a change 👢
  • Does anyone feel weird when the new year starts mid week? It’s kind of like when you’re at the crossing between 2 states with one foot on both sides.... I guess what I’m trying to say is that I’m working on moving forward but I’m also having to look back on things in order to get there. Does this make sense? #newyearnewbeginnings #makeitcount #wrapitup
  • Welcoming 2019 with open arms! Last night Jamie (my husband) and I spent a nice quiet evening at home. I made Hoppin John, Collard Greens, Corn Bread, and Pork Chops. We ended the night watching the ball drop from bed and slept in for the first time since I can’t remember when. It was perfect! Just exactly what we needed to rejuvenate ourselves for the 1st day of the year. Today we took down all the Christmas decor and talked about some things we’d like to do/change in our home this year with a fresh new perspective. Lots of ideas sparking over here! Looking forward to new beginnings and new projects! Hope y’all had an amazing New Year’s!
