Delicious! Really quick to put together and I loved the flavour added by the sesame oil in combination with the crunch of the coleslaw mix and water chestnuts. Only change I made was to use some diced pork rather than slicing myself and added a little splash more sesame oil between every second tortilla because they seemed to soak it up pretty well.
