“This slaw is great with anything BBQ'd or grilled. You are the captain of spice, you create the heat with the jalapenos you add in. You can actually leave them out and just use a drop or two of hot sauce or red pepper flakes or even a pinch of cayenne. However you make this, it's sure to be a hit! Note: I serve this in tortillas as a vegetable taco, or with meat. I also place some of the slaw on a plate and top with grilled steak, chicken, or catfish. So good!”
