1 cup diced onion

½ cup ketchup

2 (16-ounce) jars CHI-CHI’S® salsa

1/3 cup packed brown sugar

Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

¼ cup lime juice

2 tablespoons canola oil

1 tablespoon sugar

Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

2 cups coleslaw mix

1 to 2 fresh red chili peppers, thinly sliced

2 avocadoes, sliced

1 1/2 cups crumbled queso fresco cheese or shredded Monterey Jack cheese, optional
