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!

  • Here is some advice for all my SINGLE LADIES out there! 
Earlier today, I had a discussion with some younger co-workers of mine and I feel like you may relate and probably need to be told this so keep reading! One of the girls stated that she’s never had a good relationship and wanted to meet a nice guy. 
Another girl made a remark about the kind of guys she dated when she was her age and then asked me what kind of relationships I had when I was the other girl’s age and I told them the truth. I dated a very nice guy for 4 1/2 years when I was her age. At one point, I honestly thought that we would marry someday, but I was so young/still trying to figure out who I was and what I wanted my adult life to be like. Eventually we didn’t agree on the same things and grew apart. It ended well and I wish him well. Later after I had a few relationships, that also did not last and it was all for good reason. I feel like I was able to learn something from my past relationships that allowed me to be ready when I was meant to meet my husband which I have been married to for 10 years now. So the next time you look back at those past relationships and you’re looking for a nice guy, just know you’re one relationship closer to meeting the one and when you do you will know it and you will be ready for it! Just know your worth and never lower your standards because you feel like you have to to make it work. Always stay true to yourself because if you’re not, it will not be you they have fallen in love with. Like @arianagrande sings...Thank you, NEXT!

  • Lately, I’ve been reading a ton of wellness articles about the benefits of collagen powder and how women in their 30’s produce less collagen naturally which can start to effect your skin and so on. Ever since I read that. Ive been wanting to give it a try... The one I chose to put to the test is called Gym and Tonic and it’s a collagen protein powder by @tonicproducts 
I started adding 2 scoops into my blueberry banana smoothies in the mornings which has been so great because I’m guilty of never eating breakfast unless it’s brunch or brinner and I’m always rushing to get out the door and to work on time! 
Not only is it free of soy, dairy, gluten, and artificial hormones, but you can also rest assured that their ingredients have all been responsibly sourced. And here’s the bonus, it contains 18 essential amino acids that our bodies cannot produce on their own which combined will help with hair, skin, nail growth, joint pain, and good gut health! Winning!

So glad I finally tried it, and I will def be adding it into my daily routine. 
P.S. I’ve shared a Mango Smoothie Pop recipe in my stories/highlights that this would be perfect in x beating the summer heat with a sweet treat! 😉
