The local taco truck serves their chicken tacos with cabbage, cilantro and lime. This is my attempt to recreate their taco toppings.

Let me just start off by saying that it drives me crazy when people rate a recipe but completely change it. If you're rating a recipe, rate it as it was written. With that being said, I give this recipe 5 stars as written. I'm on a diet and so tired of eating plain veggies, so I was looking for something different to do with cabbage and found this recipe. I ate it more like a salad than a topping, but it was so very tasty. Finally, something I can eat guilt free. Thank you for sharing mixingmedias. Read More

This was a great base recipe for what I needed for a Take-Out Fake-Out Mexican Dinner. I tossed this with my own "Fiesta For Your Greens" dressing and we used this to make mission burritoes. Great way to get your taco take out fix without spending a ton on takeout. NOTE: Because I used my own dressing, I cut back a bit on the lime juice. Read More

Great topping for Mexican food. Someone of "the buzz" was talking about slaw for Mexican food. I had never heard of such a thing. Well I looked and found this recipe. It is so good and I will probably make it every time I make Mexican food. This would also be good on hot dogs, smoked sausage, hamburgers and sloppy joes. I bought a package of pre-cut slaw and it had the carrots already included, but I added the rest of the ingredients. This was a wonderful topping for "Mexican Beef Supreme" on AR. The leftovers were a bit spicier the next day, due to the jalapeños, but it was still wonderful. Thanks mixingmedia for sharing this recipe. This is my 400th recipe made and posted in the year 2011. Happy New Year's eveyone! Read More

I've made this several times to go on fish tacos and it's very good. I've also added a touch of sugar and white vinegar to the lime juice and also added chopped tomatoes. There's alot you can do with this recipe. My husband will eat this alone, but for me that's a bit much. Read More

Perfect just as is don't change a thing. I'm glad to find this recipe because our favorite Mexican restaurant serves it with tortilla chips. I make this often and everyone raves about it. One thing to point out; it is NOT spicy hot. If you'd rather have it that way just add more jalapenos. But try the recipe as is first. Read More

I've made this several times and have yet to have it as a slaw on tacos. I halve this recipe add 1/2 small avocado if on hand and have it for lunch. It's good with or without the avocado. Even DH likes it which is saying a lot. Eventually I'll try it on tacos. This is definitely a keeper. Read More
