Cabbage picante

This came out of a spicy mocajete recipe that I like to make. I normally make a dish with cabbage, tomatoes, and onions, and decided to throw in a little garlic and Jalpeno to give a nice Mexican flair. A great flavor booster is by dry roasting everything first in a pan so that it has a nice roasted flavor which really adds to the complexity, but I get it, you’re pressed for time and need a quick and easy recipe. Just a thought.

Cabbage picante


• 1/2 cabbage finely chopped

• 3 tomatoes sliced

• 1 jalapeño or Serrano sliced (remove seeds if you are sensitive to spiciness)

• 1/4 onion chopped

• 2 cloves garlic smashed

• olive oil


  1. Heat oil in a pan and add in garlic, Serrano, and onions cooking until brown
  2. Add in the cabbage and allow to cook covered for about 2-3 minutes
  3. Add in tomatoes along with some salt and cook for another 3-5 minutes cover just so that the tomatoes cook thoroughly and begin to “melt”
  4. Add pepper if you like and adjust salt to taste
  5. Serve and enjoy!
