Slider recipes are pretty popular around here. We mixed our regular tacos and sloppy joes’ to make Taco Sloppy Joe Sliders. They were a huge hit at our game day party, plus they are easy appetizers to make for any type of party or dinner! Grab the taco sloppy joe sliders recipe down below.
Taco Sloppy Joe Sliders
Recently one of our twins complained that our dinnertime servings were getting boring! Needless to say, I took it to heart and vowed to make dinnertime great again! Here’s what I did. I know one of the boys’ favorite meals is sloppy Joes’, and they also love tacos. Sooooo! I got to thinking, “what if I mixed the great taste of tacos with a sloppy Joe? Could I be onto something, we’ll see.
Our Taco Sloppy Joe Sliders are perfect for game night!
Instead of adding traditional sloppy Joe mix we changed the flavor profile by adding taco seasoning and our favorite salsa!
We toasted the slider buns, then piled them high with shredded Asadero cheese!
Topped with heirloom cherry tomatoes, Spanish onion, jalapeños, diced avocado, shredded lettuce and more cheese!
