Neither my fiance or I cared for this. For me, this was so-so (I didn't hate it as much as he did...). Perhaps if this sat in the fridge for longer than an hour, it would be better??? I too was afraid that a t of cayenne and an entire jalapeno would be too much, but oddly enough, it wasn't at all. I could definitely detect a spicy bite, but it was never overpowering. Sometimes I tasted a very subtle sweetness and sometimes just a spicy punch (which was odd). The flavors never seemed to mingle together as they should have. I think this would be much better as a garnish for fish or shrimp tacos. The crunchiness of the slaw would complement the tender fish nicely. Add a chipotle mayo or Amy's Cilantro Cream Sauce (also on this site), and you'd have one darn good taco. NOTE: To make this extra pretty (and to speed prep), I used a combo of shredded slaw mix (i.e. green cabbage & carrots) and purple shredded cabbage, both found in my grocer's produce section. I also want to mention one tidbit about jalapenos. The heat is contained in the membrane and seeds. As long as you remove both, you won't get any spice from it (just a nice crunch). Although I'm not jumping out of my seat to make this again, I would consider it as suggested above (I'm considering Chipotle Shrimp Tacos!). I think my fiance might like it this way also. Thanks for sharing! :)
