Green Chili Cheese Sliders [& other things you can eat on the 4th]

Reading Time: 2 minutes

I think I talk about HEB enough for everyone to know that I have an OBSESSION. I’ll honestly be really sad if I ever leave Texas, because it means I have to leave my beloved grocery store. You can imagine my surprise when the awesome folks at HEB sent me a ridiculously great cookbook – “My Texas Table” one that I’ve been searching for for a LONG time. It’s a book filled with recipes that you love, but they’re lightened up, and perfect for summer.

What I love about these recipes are that they are light, but with ingredients that you can still recognize. Something else that I loved was the tips and tricks from nutritionists about tailoring your great food to be a little bit lighter. It was hard for me to pick one recipe to try, but I was inspired.

I wanted to make something that would be easy to make for my family during the Forth of July, and something that was just a little bit different than the typical, 4th of July, backyard BBQ eats. After a ton of flipping back and forth, I figured out that I wanted to try Green Chili Sliders – of course I added a fried banana on top – that’s just how I roll!

Justin, the recipe creator said that he made 100 sliders for his mother’s 60th birthday party and they disappeared. I believe it. I made some for Bryan and I this weekend, and he ate his in a minute or two. They were REALLY delish.

Oh, and I promised some other 4th eats?

    Love me some ribs slow cooked in a smoker. Some corn on the cob cooked on the grill and baked beans! Love me some of that! Those burgers look really good! I would love to try them.
