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.
If you want the recipe for these babies, and 99 other AMAZING Texas meals, comment below and tell me what your FAVORITE 4th of July meal is, and you can win this awesome cookbook from HEB!
Oh, and I promised some other 4th eats?
