~gypsy carrots~

This is a recipe I developed after many visits to a local Mexican restaurant where they serve these carrots wrapped in warm corn tortillas with grilled shrimp and fried onions. It took a few tries, but after the last taste test I’m sure I got it right. They’re delicious and addictive.

In 2 Tablespoons butter, saute:

3 cups cleaned, sliced carrots

When the carrots are just tender, add:

1/2 cup canned tomato sauce

2 Tablespoons sugar

1 Tablespoon white vinegar

a dash of garlic powder

a dash of onion powder

cook until tomato sauce thickens and all is warmed through

Serve as a side dish or wrapped in warm corn tortillas with grilled shrimp and fried onions.

Enjoy!

    Reminds me of a warm version of Copper Pennies. A lovely blend of flavors and texture.
