SPAM® Street Taco with Red Onion & Slaw

Just because they're called street tacos doesn't mean you have to go outside! Make your own! Should we call them something else? Couch tacos? Yes. Couch tacos with glorious SPAM® Classic!

  • 2 (340g) cans SPAM® Classic, cut into thin strips
  • 8 street taco-sized flour tortillas
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp ginger, minced
  • 2 tbsp sweet chili sauce
  • 1/4 cup pickled red onion, prepared
  • 2 cups green cabbage, shredded
  • 2 cups red cabbage, shredded
  • 2 tbsp jalapeño, minced (optional)
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, minced
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 3 tbsp lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • Salt to taste


  1. Prepare the cabbage slaw by adding green cabbage, red cabbage, cilantro, and jalapeño in to a large bowl.
  2. In a smaller bowl, whisk together all other slaw ingredients.
  3. Toss the dressing over the cabbage mixture, until all the slaw is evenly coated. Chill until ready to serve on top of tacos.
  4. Preheat a wok or griddle over medium high heat, until water tossed onto the pan or griddle sizzles and evaporates.
  5. In a bowl, combine the SPAM® Classic strips and season with black pepper, garlic, ginger, and sweet chili sauce.
  6. Sauté the seasoned SPAM® Classic on the wok or griddle until the edges have become crispy and the SPAM® Classic is cooked through. Remove and divide amongst street tacos.
  7. Top with prepared cabbage slaw, and with a few pickled red onions. Top with additional cilantro for garnish if desired.
