There are few new recipe discoveries that are as big a hit as this one was when I served it the first time. If you like coleslaw and spicy food, this is the recipe for you to try. You can always adjust the spiciness to your own taste by adding more or less chile paste. The recipe is inspired by a Perla Meyers recipe which was posted in the Houston Chronicle. Whether you like the cabbage and carrots sliced, shredded, or finely minced - it makes no difference. You can purchase pre-sliced or shredded cabbage if you prefer. The prep time does not include slicing or chopping the vegetables, or the chill time.
