  • 2 cups coleslaw mix
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and thinly sliced
  • 1 cup Thousand Island salad dressing
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons Sriracha chili sauce
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 3 cups chopped cooked corned beef
  • 2 cups refrigerated diced potatoes with onion
  • 12 flour tortillas (6 inches), warmed


  1. In a small bowl, combine coleslaw mix, green onions and jalapenos. In another small bowl, whisk salad dressing and chili sauce until combined.
  2. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add corned beef and diced potatoes; cook and stir until heated through, 8-10 minutes. Serve in tortillas with coleslaw mixture and dressing mixture.

Test Kitchen tip
  • Worried that your jalapenos are a little too spicy? After you slice them, toss them in 1/4 cup vodka for about 10 minutes. It will remove a lot of the heat, leaving only the great jalapeno flavor.
