Jalapeño Coleslaw

Crisp and spicy!

Whether as a spicy side or a burger topping, this jalapeño coleslaw brings it. It’s incredibly easy to make – just chop the ingredients and combine them all together in a bowl. Let the mix chill for a few hours to really get that crisp coleslaw flavor.

Want it spicier? Serrano peppers (about twice the heat) are a good jalapeño substitute, or you can opt for chopping the chilies without deseeding. Those seeds and the membrane contain much of a chili pepper’s heat. Lessen the heat by lessening the amount of chilies used.
