    This combination of pickled chile peppers, carrots and onions are offered across Mexico but is considered a Yucatan regional dish. In Spain and the Mediterranean region, Escabeche is fish, fried or grilled, with an acidic type sauce and this has influenced the Mexican version. Some offer it as a garnish while others offer it as a salad.

    1. 1
      Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium high heat. Add the onion and saute for three minutes, then add the garlic. Continue cooking until the onions are soft, 1-2 minutes more.
    2. 2
      Add the water and bring to a boil. Add the jalapenos and carrots and cook for 5 minutes, until slightly softened. Add the cider vinegar, 1 tbsp pickling salt, oregano and bay leaves and simmer for 1 minute. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely.
    3. 3
      Transfer the jalapenos, carrots and onions with slotted spoon or tongs into sterilized glass quart-sized jars. Throw away the bay leaves.
    4. 4
      Cover the vegetables with the cooking liquid until the jars are three-quarters full. Add 1 tbsp pickling salt to each jar and fill to the top with white vinegar.
    5. 5
      Cap each jar tightly and store in the refrigerator for up to several months. The pickled vegetables can be used starting one week later.

      Let me preface this by saying that my husband and I are chili-heads, so we can handle the heat.<br/><br/>For starters, I used 10 ghost peppers instead of 15 jalapenos. Ghost peppers are what jalepenos want to be when they grow up, so are considerably hotter. I also cheated, and used baby carrots instead of taking the time to peel and cut up carrots. That said, I followed the recipe to the letter, and it really didn't take that long to get everything done. The long part was just waiting the week for the mixture to pickle, and was it worth it!! The heat isn't that much because the oil tames it, but it has a wonderful flavor. I'm making burgers tonight, and can't wait to try the onions on the burgers!
