Simple Texas Chipotle Slaw

This is a vinegar-based cole slaw with a bit of a kick. It's incredibly easy to make, and the only key is to allow enough time for the flavors to develop (a simple matter of leaving it in the fridge for ~4 hours).  Here are the ingredients:

1 medium head of green cabbage, shredded
¼ medium head of red cabbage, shredded
2 jalapenos, finely diced
4 shredded carrots
½ cup sugar
½ cup white vinegar
¼ cup oil (canola is good)
2 chipotles chopped with adobo sauce
Salt and pepper to taste

The amount of cabbage is obviously sort of approximate, but is roughly 10 cups all together. Simply combine everything and mix really well. Then give it 4 hours in the fridge. The result is a bright, sweet and spicy slaw that we all really enjoyed. The freshness and coolness of the slaw play really well with the heartiness of the beans for the record.
