Whether you're hosting a homestyle fiesta or entertaining friends on game day, these Easy Cheesy Taco Sliders will be the star of the gathering. To prepare, slider rolls are stuffed with taco seasoned ground beef, then sandwiched together with two heavenly layers of Sargento® Blends™ 4 Cheese Southwest Slices. After being brushed with butter, they're baked until the rolls are golden and the cheese has melted; turning them into a gooey extravaganza.
Easy Cheesy Taco Sliders
My family loves cheese in any and all flavors. If a dish is filled with cheese, sprinkled or stuffed with cheese, it's a given, they'll devour it. They also love tacos so, after browsing the sliced cheese in the dairy aisle at my local grocery store, I was delighted to find this amazing new Sargento Southwestern cheese product. Cheese forms the edible "glue" to keep these South-of-the-border inspired, taco sliders intact.
Helpful Tips for Making Taco Sliders
- For a timesaver, the taco beef filling can be made in advance, then placed into an airtight container and chilled. You could even freeze it if you're planning an upcoming event.
- I like serving these cheesy sliders with assorted toppings so everyone can dress their Taco Sliders to their personal taste.
- They're packed with flavor and you can adapt using pepper jack cheese slices, colby jack or any of your favorite flavors of cheese.
- The cheese provides two layers of ooey gooey melted cheese that makes them irresistible.
