All this snow has me missing milder west coast weather and my friends in Arizona. In past years we hosted quite a few game day events this time of year. Luckily our new Ohio peeps are big sports fans too! I have planning our upcoming game day menu and this super easy Baja Chicken Sloppy Joes recipe is at the center of our spread.
Our new favorite happy hour haunt has a Baja chicken pizza full of west coast zing that’s the inspiration for this recipe. Most of the ingredients in these sliders are basic pantry staples. Like a can of fire roasted tomatoes. Tomatoes and green chilies would make a delicious substitute too!
Baja Chicken Sloppy Joes Sliders
Pepperidge Farm Slider Buns are my go-to for game day recipes because they are made from premium ingredients and come in a variety of delicious flavors. Like White, Sesame, Potato, Sweet & Soft, and Wheat buns.
The difference between these Baja Chicken Sloppy Joes Sliders and a basic chicken taco slider is the sweetness factor. Traditional sloppy joes are a tasty combination of sweet and savory. So I get that aspect intact and jazzed up the rest of the ingredients. Such as substituting red wine vinegar for fresh squeezed lime juice. Plus swapping parsley for cilantro!
Thinly sliced green cabbage makes a simple, yet crunchy topping. Paul snuck a few pickles in there too. Which ended up being a yummy idea! You can totally add your favorite extras like avocado, cheese, or sour cream. Just don’t forget an extra squeeze of lime juice right before serving!
