WHAT IS CREAMY RED CABBAGE SLAW

  • It is simply, sliced red cabbage with cilantro, lime juice and a creamy mayo/sour cream chipotle adobo sauce.
  • That is then seasoned with salt and pepper and goes well on fish tacos.

WHAT IS CHIPOTLE ADOBO SAUCE

Chipotles in adobo are smoked and dried jalapeños rehydrated and canned in a sweet and tangy purée of tomato, vinegar, garlic, and some other spices.

When making this for fish tacos, be sure to make one hour ahead of time.

This slaw is best once it marinates.
