Sugar Free Pickled Red Onions

We just made some fantastic Sugar Free Pickled Red Onions!!

I love to add these sugar free pickled red onions as a topping on our low carb chorizo avocado tacos! Take a look! We used a low carb tortilla, guacamole, cooked beef chorizo, shredded jalapeno mozzarella cheese, cilantro, green salsa, sour cream, and crumble Queso Fresco. We also included a poached egg on this taco sometimes too! It’s loaded with flavor and the sugar free pickled red onions topped complete this taco!

Here’s a trick to help your eyes not start watering while you are cutting onions.  Place a moist wet dish cloth next to the onions you cut.  Cut onions are attracted to moisture so instead of the fumes getting to your eyes they will hit the dish cloth first.
