  • 1/3 cup mayo
  • 1/3 cup whole milk sour cream
  • 1 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 (14 oz.) bag of coleslaw mix
  • 1/3 cup thinly sliced green onions (green parts only)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped pickled jalapeños (homemade or store-bought)

The spiciness of this coleslaw will vary depending on the type of pickled jalapeños used. Choose a brand that says mild or "tamed" on the label if you want less heat. Alternatively, you could just use less of them. <br /><br />Estimated Nutrition Facts:
