Throughout the month of February I’ve been sharing all Spanish and Mexican inspired dishes here on the blog. 

We’ve made chicken, chili, dessert, tacos, and low carb Mexican rice. 

It’s been a delicious, spicy, and fun theme to work with! Mexican food is hands down my favorite so this hardly felt like “work” at all!

I’m capping off the month with a recipe for a low carb Mexican coleslaw

Truth be told, I’ve been making this recipe for the better part of a year but had it stashed away for just the right time, which is now!

 

 

You’re Going To Love This Low Carb Mexican Coleslaw

Let me tell you why:

  • It’s easy to throw together
  • Simple ingredients that can all be purchased at regular grocery stores
  • Dairy free, paleo, and keto
  • Delicious on top of tacos or alongside your favorite Mexican casserole
  • Alternative to salsa or queso

 

 

Making Your Own Chipotle Lime Coleslaw

This low carb Mexican coleslaw couldn’t be any easier to make. With no cooking required, you can easily toss this together while your taco meat is simmering on the stove.

Just like my creamy keto coleslaw, this chipotle lime version is simple but delicious. You only need 6 ingredients to fix this keto Mexican side dish too, 5 of which I know you keep in your fridge or pantry!

The two ingredients that make this chipotle lime low carb Mexican coleslaw unique are lime juice and a chipotle hot sauce.

You can use any brand of chipotle pepper sauce you like, but I find that the Tabasco brand chipotle hot sauce is fantastic, cheap, and easy to find! 

I actually like to use this chipotle hot sauce in other recipes like my taco cheeseburgers or add a few drops on top of a taco salad!

If you like the smokey essence of chipotle, this will definitely be an ingredient you grow to love and keep on hand!

 

 

Can I Substitute the Chipotle Pepper Sauce?

If for whatever reason you can’t use this hot sauce, you could use a small amount of the sauce from canned adobo peppers. If you’ve recently made my adobo chicken, you may have some leftover in your fridge to use up. 

I would start with 1/2 teaspoon and work your way up to the desired spice level. Since that sauce tends to run a bit spicier, I would start small to be safe! 

I would not use chipotle powder as a replacement in this low carb Mexican coleslaw. 

 

This chipotle lime low carb Mexican coleslaw is a fun and spicy way to top off your favorite tacos, taco salads, or even serve alongside your favorite Mexican dishes! This dairy free, keto, and paleo spicy chipotle coleslaw is just what you need for your future keto tacos.
