Cheese is a happy friend to whatever you fill tortillas with: sliced, cubed, crumbled, or especially shredded atop fajitas piled high with steak, peppers, and rice. Cheese is good—but, let's dare say it, slaw is better.
Slaw is crunchy—and it can be creamy, smokey, sweet, or peppery depending on the kind. Slaw adds texture; it's never one-note in flavor, nor does it dominate like cheese can. Slaw is happy to play a supporting side to your spread, yet it can be whatever you want it to be (a topping, perhaps?).
