Pickled Onion Condiment

In Belize, at every restaurant, they have this on the table and we have been anxious for a kitchen where we could make it ourselves. Its great on almost anything. They slice onion and either habaneros or jalapenos (we used jalapenos) and put in a jar. Then boil 1 cup white vinegar, 1 cup water and some sugar (we had to use brown sugar because that was what they had at the store) and pour over the onions. Its delicious and we cant get enough of it.

When I was in Belize, the first time I saw this I thought it was a "slaw" like we have at home. After I took a big bite I realized the organge strips were habaneros and not carrots! Whew!

LOL. In Guatemala City, the family we stayed with made a similar sauce from Chiltepe peppers. It took us days to realize that the "peas" were not peas but were hot little peppers.
