Paleo Pickled Jalapenos Peppers Recipe & Red Onion

These quick-pickled jalapeno peppers and onions are delicious on top of your favorite Mexican or Tex Mex dishes. They can also be enjoyed on their own, or in wraps, salads, or anywhere you want a little extra spice. For a nice twist, try the pickling liquid in place of plain vinegar in homemade vinaigrettes and marinades.

Safety Tip: Wear gloves when handling jalapeno peppers to prevent burning.
