  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon chili flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne

  • To make the sweet chili sauce combine all ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer until thickened. Let cool then mix with the mayonnaise and Sriracha.
  • In a large bowl combine the shredded Napa cabbage, shredded red cabbage, minced cilantro, and green onions. Toss with the 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar, 1/2 tablespoon honey and a pinch of salt. Set aside.
  • To make the tortillas combine all ingredients in a medium mixing bowl and whisk until smooth. Heat a cast iron skillet over high heat and add a bit of coconut oil or butter to the pan. Pour in 1/5 of the batter at a time and spread out into about a 6" circle. Allow to cook 1-2 minutes then flip and cook another 1-2 minutes. The tortillas should be soft and foldable but golden brown. Repeat until you have 5 tortillas and set aside.
