This fragrant slaw recipe serves deliciously atop grilled fish or alongside a Mexican-style chicken recipe.

I made this tonight to go along with the Grilled Tilapia Soft Taco Recipe found on this site. My grocery store was out of jicama, so I just used red cabbage instead and it was still really good. It made a LOT of slaw time I will cut the recipe in half. My husband LOVED the meal (and he's Cuban so he knows Hispanic flair!)

Very tasty coleslaw with a Mexican flair. This is great on fish tacos or can stand alone with barbqued ribs or chicken. I used ground chipotle spice instead of cayanne
