Smoked Chili Coleslaw

A favorite slaw recipe with a little kick! I got this recipe from Food Network.

½ cup olive oil based mayo
2 tablespoons chipotle peppers in adobe sauce
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 teaspoons honey
1 teaspoon ground cumin
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
1 medium head cabbage, finely shredded
2 large carrots, finely shredded - I did not have any fresh carrots when I prepared this, so the photo shown is without carrots
½ red onion, thinly sliced and cut
¼ cup fresh cilantro or 2 tablespoons dried - I used dried cilantro, this time

Combine mayo, chopped chipotle peppers and sauce, lime juice, honey, and cumin in a large bowl. Season lightly with kosher salt and freshly ground pepper. 

Stir in remaining ingredients. Cover and refrigerate at least 20 minutes.
