I took one bite and had to put it in the trash. It was way too spicy, but with that aside, the flavor was just very unappetizing. My husband thought it was just okay. To make it easier, instead of trying to finely chop the chiles, I'd put all of the sauce ingredients in a blender or food processor.

This is excellent!! My husband and I LOVE spicy, so this was right up our alley. I halved the recipe, but upped the chipotle chillies. I think I used like 2 1/2 chopped up chillies. It was almost too spicy, but that's my fault...next time I'll scale it back a little, but not too much! My husband couldn't stop raving about it. Thanks so much for the easy, simple, and delicious recipe! Can't wait to share this with others.

I found mayonnaise too rich the first time, so i did half lite mayo and half lite sour cream the second time. it was a much nicer balance (and healthier, too!). Also, the lime juice to honey ratio is a bit off -- a little more lime, a little less honey! Overall, a big hit!

We love this recipe! I am not a big cole slaw fan either. It is great with an easy meal of tostadas topped with refried beans & cheese melted on top after a few minutes in the oven. Top it with this cole slaw and it is hard to stop eating them! If you don't want it too spicy then go easy on the Chipotle pepper. I keep the leftover pepper in a container in my fridge for the next several times, a small can goes a long ways.

This is a nice switch from the usual cole slaw. I liked the touch of chipotle!

This is good! I didn't think it was too spicy at all... I ended up using an extra chipotle. Made this to serve with #172290. Definitely a nice change from your typical slaw, and great with a tex mex style dinner!

This is a great slaw! My boyfriend, who told me as I was serving him the slaw that he DOESN'T EVEN LIKE SLAW said that it was delicious! It has a great little spicy kick to it that's just perfect. I served this slaw with Crock Pot Pulled Pork sandwiches and it was a great combination. Thank you!

You have converted a coleslaw hater. This was really good, I'll be making again. I wish I had all of the veggie ingredients on hand, because it would have been even better. The dressing is great, I used bottled chipotle sauce, but will be on the lookout for the other sort. Thanks...even my 2 year old liked this!

this was a fun change from my normal coleslaw. Took it to a pitch-in dinner.

I have never been fond of coleslaw. This recipe looked interesting. I really like chipotle and love cilantro. I had an abundance of cabbage in the garden and decided to give it a go. I made half the recipe and that was a lot. I can now say I love coleslaw (at least this recipe). I subbed half of the mayo with light sour cream, I agree with previous reviewer, it works. I decreased the honey about in half. I also increased the lime juice and the cilantro, added about 1/4 t. cumin & some salt to taste. Thanks for the recipe, it's a keeper!
