Mini Baja Tacos at Bailiwick San Diego

It’s Taco Tuesday and only two days away from the blogs 2 year blogiversary party where these delicious Mini Tacos will be served!

Fernanda Peimbert, the chef at Bailiwick where the party will be hosted, asked what kind of hors d’oeuvres I’d like served at the event.  I told her light, fresh and gluten free!

This is the first of four recipes she created for the party that I’ll be sharing with all of you!

Mini Baja Tacos at Bailiwick San Diego

I shot the images above during a tasting last week at Bailwick, then I came home and re-created the dish.

While Fernanda used pickled red onions, I used raw red onions and pickled jalapeños instead.

To be completely honest, I liked her pickled red onions better than my raw red onions, but I did like the addition of pickled jalapeños on mine!

For those of you making the dish at home, you can try either the raw or pickled red onions and decide for yourself which you like best!
