This recipe is very flexible, meaning that I rarely remember to put all of the same ingredients/proportions in twice, and it still tastes great.
When you’re thinking about that pool party or backyard BBQ, and you’re wondering what you’re going to prepare that’s going to be easy to whip up and tasty enough to have everybody coming back for seconds, this Mexican coleslaw is the dish that’ll get you through the summer. While we’ll always love traditional coleslaw, we can’t help but feel that this one is way better, since it’s pumped up and chock full of color and flavor. Cabbage and/or coleslaw mix is still the base of this recipe, but we’ve thrown in a bunch of add-ins – corn, bell peppers, black beans, jalapeño and lime juice – that turn this into something special…trust us, you’re going to like this!
So awesome! Two of my favorites: cilantro and lime. I tried to be cute and measure out the ingredients, but why bother; this recipe is fool proof. I omitted the chili sauce, and added some grated carrot. Oh! I also used the “juice” from a jar of pickled jalapenos in place of the rice vinegar and served the jalapenos on the side. I just served it with some fried beef chops this time, but I bet this would be AWESOME on a pulled beef sandwich.
One of the best parts about this recipe, as with the classic version, is that it’s super refreshing and perfect for days when you need to get a little pick-me-up in the form of a tasty side dish. The taco seasoning and jalapeño kick things up a notch (without being too spicy), and the other add-ins we mentioned above all work together to give this dish more substance, so it’ll fill you up and keep you full. Finally, any dish that you can make in under 10 minutes and that can feed a crowd is absolutely A-okay with us. You can’t go wrong with this!
Perfect – just what I was looking for. 🙂 However, I used plain yogurt instead of mayo, and did not have chili sauce. The flavor is even better the second day, so if you can, make the dressing ahead of time. The veggies get too soggy if you make the whole thing a day ahead.
