Taco Slaw - Repollo Y Lima

About: I love all aspects of cooking...okay that's not true, I'm not a fan of baking. I love the free form of cooking savory foods versus baking but with time, I hope to learn more techniques as I peruse the differ...

So a few weeks ago I visited my aunt who lives in So Cal.  She had me help her make this cabbage/cilantro/lime topping that I have now been addicted to ever since.

1 pkg of cole slaw mix, chopped fine
juice of 6 limes
1 bunch cilantro chopped fine
A few pickled jalapenos minced
vinegar from jalapeno can
onion powder
garlic powder

*Optional items I would have used but did not have on hand*
1 diced cucumber
1/2 diced onion

Mix all of your ingredients in a bowl and let it sit until the cabbage is tangy, about 30 minutes.  Top your tacos (in this case, carne asada tacos) and eat.  Refrigerate leftovers, tastes even better the next day.  I've even added shrimp and ate it with chips, so good!
