Mexican Coleslaw

Is there anything a side of delicious Mexican coleslaw can’t improve? Add a generous amount of this crisp cabbage Mexican slaw recipe to your tacos and you’re on to a winner. 

A much more flavourful recipe than traditional coleslaw, we simply dress our slaw with a bit of extra chipotle smokiness by making a homemade chipotle Mayo with Gran Luchito Chipotle Paste and a bit of our Gran Luchito Smoky Chipotle Fajita and Taco Mix. Add vinegar and extra virgin olive oil and then simply season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Chef’s tip

The best way to achieve a great texture here is to use the fine julienne blade on a Japanese mandoline.
