Quick & Easy Spicy Asian Pickles

These babies are H.O.T; hot and delicious!  They are that perfect little treat that adds an extra kick of heat to any dish that needs a little nudge of wow factor.  They are great on burgers, tacos, sandwiches, or just plan out of the jar if you are feeling a little bold and dangerous.  Me, being a pickle addict inside and out, couldn’t get enough of them and didn’t mind the numbing heat that radiated off my tongue from cramming as many as possible in it at one time.  The flavor alone was so worth it.

So bring on the heat and give these babies a try.  They definitely won’t disappoint!
