The other night I was in a taco kind of mood. So instead of heading out to eat, I whipped up some fresh tacos at home. And boy did they ever hit the spot. Justin and I made and consumed a whole lot of tacos.
The taco recipe is easy, basically you pick your tortillas, you know, corn or flour. Either one works. I went with a white corn tortilla. I cooked our tortillas in a skillet with a little oil to make them crispy. Then I topped them with cheese, grilled and seasoned chicken, sour cream, and the most delicious Spicy Honey Lime Slaw.
Spicy Honey Lime Slaw
- 1/2 or a whole head of a small purple cabbage
- 1 small red onion
- juice of 2-3 limes
- 1/4 cup of raw honey
- 1-2 tablespoons of hot sauce (We use Tapatio)
- salt and pepper to taste
We eat a lot of chicken around here though so I’ve only made the slaw to go with chicken tacos, and even chicken burritos. I love fresh veggies, salsas, or lettuce on my tacos, but I have to say this slaw is so great. It adds so much flavor, and texture to the mix. Plus, red cabbage is so much better for you than shredded Iceberg lettuce that most people put on their tacos. It’s full of health benefits. Pretty sure I read somewhere that it has cancer-preventative properties. Awesome, right?
So eat up friends, and enjoy!
