Texas Cheeseburger Sliders

These juicy sliders are packed full of Tex Mex flavours.

When we lived in Houston (about 18 yrs ago), I quickly realized that Mexican food had a definite place in that state. I loved being able to find a taco stand, and buy some authentic Mexican food. Our favorites were Tamales and anytime we would drive by a certain corner store that happened to double as a Mexican take out, we would grab some to take home. I found this recipe through Better Homes and Gardens, and I can see why they call them Texas Cheeseburgers. They have great Mexican flavors running through them. I decided to turn this recipe into sliders, since my daughter and I are not big beef eaters. I did switch up some of the flavours, by subbing some green chiles for poblano. I didn't want these to be too hot for the kids.

These were super tender and juicy. I loved the spicy chiles and hot sauce, paired with the subtle creamy Jack cheese. I decided to serve these on homemade scones, but they would also be good on biscuits, or even slider buns. We topped ours with nice thin sliced tomato and avocado, which I had dressed with lime juice and salt. Pickled jalapenos would have also brought a nice bite to these burgers. Super simple and super delicious!!

1/2 small onion, grated
1 can green chiles
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 pounds lean ground beef
1-2 tsp hot sauce (we like Frank's), optional
8 ounces Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeno peppers or Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
slider buns, scones or biscuits
Assorted condiments such as tomato and avocado, grilled red onion

Mix the onion, chiles, chili powder, salt, and black pepper in a large mixing bowl; add ground meat and mix well. Shape mixture into 16 patties about 3/4-inch thick. Place on a tray; cover and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.

Place patties on the lightly oiled rack of the grill directly over medium heat. Grill for 8 to 12 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in centers registers 160 degree F, turning burgers once. Top burgers with shredded cheese during the last 1 minute of grilling.

Toast slider buns on grill rack, cut sides down, about 1 minute or until lightly toasted. Serve burgers on buns with desired assorted condiments. Makes 16 slider burgers.

I originally saw this recipe on Pinterest (via Six Sister's Stuff) and it had my tummy rumbling so hard, that I knew I had to make it. I had chicken in the freezer, so decided to make this chicken on a day where I would be at school all day. Nothing like walking into the most amazing smell, when you get home from a busy day of work! 
I love that this recipe is so simple, yet it is out of this world delicious. Sweet and savory combine, to coat this tender chicken. It literally fell apart as I tried to remove it from the crock pot. Once tossed with the thickened glaze, I served it with cooked rice/fried rice and some fresh snap peas. It was an amazingly fantastic crock pot meal, that I will be making again and again.

Bacon-Mozzarella Accordion Garlic Bread

A fresh baguette is stuffed with bacon, cheese and garlic butter, for an addictive appetizer.

When we used to go out to eat, if it is on the menu, we would order a bruschetta type accordion bread. I thought I could make an awesome garlic bread, using the same concept, but adding ingredients that we totally love. We often like to top leftover garlic bread with mozzarella cheese, to make it seem new again, so I wanted to incorporate that between the garlicky slices or baguette. And we all know how AWESOME bacon is right??

This is a super simple, yet deliciously impressive appetizer. I'm sure your guests would all Oooh and Ahhh over the ooey gooey bread with bacon. They would be totally CRAZY if they didn't!! The kids really loved this too. The inside was soft and garlicky, full of cheese, bacon and nice fresh green onion. The outside was crispy and buttery.

8 Ways to Have a Fun and Delicious Halloween at Home

Wondering how to spend Halloween this year, due to the pandemic? Well I have 8 fun and delicious ways to make an at home Halloween, tons of fun!

2020 has been turned upside down. My kids have not seen friends, or the inside of a school since March. While we do have our social bubble, this bubble consists of family and a few select friends. Being someone who could be vulnerable during these crazy times, I have been trying to make every day life as normal as possible. With Halloween fast approaching, I have been thinking of how to make sure my children have a super fun day, but not put our bubble at risk. It would be much easier if my health was 100%, but we will make the best of our Halloween at home.
