Description

Aside from being good, it really doesn’t get much simpler than this. Despite the name, this would be welcome in almost
any situation where you’d serve coleslaw. I served it on grilled fish tacos.

Ingredients

  • ¼ heads Green Cabbage
  • ⅛ heads Red Cabbage
  • ¼ whole Medium Red Onion, Sliced Very Thin (about 1/2 Cup)
  • ⅛ cups Cilantro, Chopped Medium-fine
  • _____
  • FOR THE DRESSING:
  • 3 Tablespoons Mayonnaise
  • 2 whole Limes, Juiced
  • 1 whole Chipotle Chile, In Adobo Sauce (canned)
  • 1 Tablespoon Adobo Sauce (from The Canned Chiles)
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Salt

Preparation

Combine all of the dressing ingredients in a small mixing bowl with tall sides, or a large tumbler cup/glass.

Blend the ingredients well with a stick blender, then set aside.

Slice the green cabbage thin (just under 1/4″) and put it in a large mixing bowl. You need about three cups.

Slice the red cabbage just like the green and add it to the mixing bowl. You need about 1 1/2 cups.

Add the sliced onion, cilantro, and the dressing to the bowl.

Stir all of the ingredients well.

Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

Serve along side/on top of your food of choice and enjoy!

(Makes about 4 cups.)

I made this last weekend for a BBQ and it was delicious. Unfortunately, here in the UK, chipotle chiles in adobo sauce are rare to come by in our standard supermarkets and I didn’t have time to order off the net. I did, however, substitute them with a little chipotle paste which I managed to lay my hands on. This coleslaw is amazing. The lime mixed with the chile and coriander is sensational and then when it hits with the creaminess of the mayo, it blew my taste buds off. The family couldn’t get enough of it and there were no leftovers! I was even asked if I could quickly knock up some more!

VERY tart but a large dollop of honey makes it so good. ncunninginwv, don’t leave out the cilantro!

I made this for my family’s Memorial Day weekend BBQ! Our little grocery store did not have the chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, so I had to improvise with chipotle enchilada sauce. I omitted the cilantro as that’s usually a hit or miss addition with most people. I also added a bit of sugar.

Overall! Fantastic! Even my skeptical boyfriend (who loves traditional cole slaw) was pretty impressed! I do think this will be a hit tomorrow. Thanks for the recipe!

Delicious, but as others said, we found this to be very spicy. Much too spicy to eat on its own. If we make this again, we’ll probably use half or less of a pepper. The flavor with the fish tacos was great.

This was good, but I thought it was REALLY spicy, even after adding honey as a few other commenters suggested. I can be a wimp when it comes to heat, so just beware if you are the same way :) I would make again, but probably not use the chile and just use about 1/2 of the adobo sauce. I didn’t eat it on fish tacos, but it would be great on them! It is a lovely dish.

Folks let me just say if you plan on making PattioDaddio’s fish tacos, this slaw is a MUST! It was incredible and we don’t even eat slaw around here. Thanks for another fantastic recipe.

Perfect with the grilled fish tacos, and comes together so easily. The flavor of the chipotle and adobo sauce is terrific!

This slaw was great on the spicy fish tacos! I am giving it four instead of five mits, because I, too, needed to add some sugar to the dressing. The recipe as is was just too tart and spicy for my taste. The sugar added the perfect balance.

I used the pre-packaged “broccoli slaw” from the store, because I don’t like raw cabbage. It was very good.

Thanks for the great meal!
