Ready In:
30 Min


6 Tbsp. Texas Brew Honey Roasted Chipotle Salsa, Mild
8 oz light sour cream (whole sour cream makes a thicker dressing)
8 oz low fat cream cheese (whole cream cheese makes a thicker dressing)
2 garlic cloves, chopped/pressed
½ tsp. onion powder
½ tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. ancho chili powder (regular chili powder can be substituted)
2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
3 Tbsp. cilantro, chopped
2 tsp. kosher salt

Blend all ingredients well, except Texas Brew Honey Roasted Chipotle Salsa, in a food processor. Once blended, add salsa and blend just enough to disperse throughout the dressing. Refrigerate overnight. Yields approximately 2 ½ cups of dressing.

Note: Always mix slaw and dressing 10 to 15 minutes prior to serving. Do not pre-mix the day before.


1 small head of Napa cabbage grated (1¼ lbs. Cole slaw mix can be substituted, just add chopped green onions)
¼ head purple cabbage, grated
2 carrots, grated or finely julienned
1 cup green onions, finely chopped
2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
1 tsp. kosher salt

Mix slaw ingredients and add as much dressing to the above slaw recipe as you wish 10 to 15 minutes prior to serving. Yields approximately 1¼ lbs. of slaw mix depending on size of Napa cabbage. Salt to taste.

Suggestion: A wonderful base for grilled chicken salad. Put on spring mix, spinach leaves or add diced grilled chicken, parmesan cheese, dried cranberries and sliced almonds. Serve it on fish tacos or with grilled shrimp brushed with Texas Brew Honey Roasted Chipotle Salsa or simply serve on tortilla chips or crackers. For cheese lovers try it on crackers with parmesan, feta or blue cheese.
