This is a wonderful version of coleslaw that packs a little heat. It's perfect with any summer BBQ. Adjust the heat by adding to or removing the jalapeños! From Chef Dean Fearing, The Mansion on Turtle Creek, in Dallas Texas.

Great slaw! I took the easy way out and used a 16-ounce package of slaw mix that included green cabbage, red cabbage, and carrots. I subbed a serrano for the jalapeno and used the food processor, rather than the blender, to prepare the dressing. I didn't worry too much with mincing or dicing the dressing ingredients very finely (just coarsely chopped), since I knew the processor would finish the job. We really enjoyed this flavorful slaw--thanks for sharing the recipe!

I brought this to a friend's Fourth of July celebration with his family. Two other traditional coleslaws were also on the table. The one I brought was GONE while the others were only half eaten! They all loved the jalapeno kick mixed with the garlic and cilantro. Great recipe, and definitely one I'll use over and over!

This really hit the spot with my family. They like it hot! It just gets better the next day. Will add this to my "make frequently" file.
