I used a can of green chilies in place of the jalapeno and increased the ranch dressing and cheese. Makes a great side dish!

I thought this was okay but not great. I think it may have been the cumin that kind of ruined it for me. Usually I like cumin, but kind of seemed off in coleslaw.

I first made this coleslaw 6 years ago when I saw it in Simple & Delicious. My grandmother gave me a gift subscription because I was newly married and didn't really know how to cook. My husband loved it!! I make it often in the summer and now it has gotten around our family and friends so when there is a baby shower or picnic I am always asked to bring my "spicy coleslaw!" People tell me they are not big on coleslaw, but this one they like!! Thanks for a great recipe that now brings to mind great memories!

This recipe is identical to Ranch Coleslaw. We were disappointed in the recipe and will not make it again.

This is my very favorite slaw recipe! It is a staple on our table in the summer. A perfect compliment for pulled pork sandwiches, hamburgers and hot dogs. I like to add some additional lime juice. Yum!

I was hesitant to try this because of the rather unusual ingredients for coleslaw, but I was pleasantly surprised! It was very good and is a great side dish for Tex/Mex menus! I love cilantro so I added even more of that. My kids didn't like it, but they're not that adventurous. I think I'll try this on my coworkers the next time we have a potluck lunch...
