B-Daddy’s Chipotle Slaw [RECIPE]

B-Daddy's Chipotle Slaw

B.R. and his son Kyle have perfected this creamy, spicy slaw to serve not only as a topping for a sandwich or taco, but also as a formidable side. If you can’t find chipotle salsa, simply blend up canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce until smooth. If you have time, it’s best to put this together a few hours before serving to really let the flavors meld.

HANDS-ON: 15 minutes
TOTAL: 15 minutes


  • 1/2 head red cabbage, cored and finely shredded
  • 1/2 head green cabbage, cored and finely shredded
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 bunch fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1/2 bunch scallions, finely chopped
  • 1 cup matchstick carrots

  • 1/2 cup chipotle salsa
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Sriracha chili sauce
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 lime, juiced (about 2 tablespoons)


  1. Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl. Using tongs or clean hands, thoroughly toss mixture until combined. Cover and chill until ready to serve.

YIELD: 8 servings
