  2. To prepare coleslaw: combine coleslaw/cabbage, jalapenos, and pickling juice, vinegar, green onions, and cilantro in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  3. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add beef and saute until cooked through, 2-3 minutes. Meanwhile, heat the tortillas according to package directions; keep warm.
  4. To serve, place about 3/4 cup of coleslaw mix into each tortilla and top immediately with beef, roll to enclose.
