You can store Mexican Pickled Onions in any glass jar. However, my favorite are the Ball jars. They’re super cheap and good quality. You can find them on Amazon. (Affiliate)

Pour the mixture over the onions. Give everything a gentle stir to combine.

Opened jars last 2 weeks in the fridge. Unopened jars and in a refrigerator, they last 1-2 years. Hope you enjoy!
