  1. Mix chipotle hot sauce, rice vinegar, soy sauce, ginger, and agave syrup together in a small bowl to make sauce.
  2. Heat olive oil and sesame oil in a wok or large skillet over medium heat. Add ground turkey; cook, stirring to break up clumps, until juices run clear, about 6 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a bowl, reserving juices in the wok.
  3. Combine coleslaw mix, red bell pepper, green onions, and garlic in the wok; cook and stir over medium heat until slaw is slightly wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Add sauce; mix to combine, about 1 minute. Return turkey to the wok and stir until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes.
  4. Sprinkle sesame seeds over slaw before serving.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Substitute ginger paste for the minced ginger if desired.
  • Substitute white sugar for the agave syrup if desired.
  • Use coleslaw mix with red cabbage and carrots for maximum color and vegetable variety.

Tasty, but even with only about 2/3 of the sauce, it was too spicy for us. We added some raw coleslaw mix on top to take out the heat and it that did it. Next time I'll reduce the hot sauce, soy...
