  • 1 tablespoon chipotle hot sauce (such as Cholula®)

  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

  • 1 ½ teaspoons minced ginger

  • 1 teaspoon agave syrup

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil

  • 1 pound ground turkey

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ tablespoon ground black pepper

  • 1 (8 ounce) package coleslaw mix

  • ½ red bell pepper, diced

  • 2 green onions, chopped, or more to taste

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds


  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.
