I've had a lot of requests for this recipe ever since I posted the photo, so here you go! It's a pretty simple recipe with fantastic results. This was my first time cooking a Moroccan spiced anything, so I was super pleased with how yummy it turned out. And the slaw has an interesting mix of sweet and sour which is really good. Just so you know, this recipe will yield more slaw than you need for the tacos because I wanted some to eat on the side, and for those who do not eat tortillas. With the extra amount of slaw, it makes for the easy option of having a 'taco salad' instead of tacos with tortillas. Versatile and tasty!
