This Mexican restaurant side dish is one of my favorites....I love them from Roberto's Taco shops in Las Vegas. I found this recipe online and think it comes pretty close to Roberto's! You could modify it by adding sliced onions, if desired. This is a great low-cal snack to keep on hand - it's great when you're craving salty/spicy food!
- 4 ounces jalapenos, diced in juice
- 3⁄4 cup white vinegar
- 3⁄4 cup water
- 10 peppercorns
- 1 lb carrot, sliced thin
- 5 bay leaves
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 3 teaspoons minced garlic cloves
- Spray a large saucepan with cooking spray, and add garlic. Saute' for 3 minutes. Add carrots and saute' another 3 minutes. Add all other ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove to large bowl, cover, and refrigerate overnight.
