Once I got all the carrots and onions peeled and sliced, I discovered I didn't have the chili's needed to make the recipe, so I cheated and threw in a small can of Embasa brand pickled jalapenos en escabeche.

Not only did I not have the chilis but I didn't have the radishes either; not having_all_the ingredients has never stopped me before, and so far, (knock on wood) I haven't had too many disasters. 

This turned out so good I don't know how the original recipe can top it, but I'll eventually give it a try. 

What I did different was to not use the chilis called for in the recipe, but substituted them with a small can of Embasa brand jalapenos en escabeche. I also substituted a medium onion for the radishes; and I doubled the liquids and herbs. 

 

Here's the original recipe
