A few of my recipes are completely unplanned and come out of sheer necessity to use up items in my refrigerator. These are sometimes my very best recipes.  This is one of those recipes.

I had a container full of cooked, shredded chicken leftover from making a Buffalo Chicken Frittata (recipe is in my cookbook!) for brunch last weekend. I knew I needed to use it up before heading out of town this weekend so I started to brainstorm.

Whether you’re a fan of food on a stick or food on a miniature bun, they’re both delicious and they’re both perfect for summer cooking and grilling!

Beef and Chorizo Nacho Burger Sliders

Being born and raised an Oklahoma girl, there’s not much I love more than a cheeseburger and “queso dip”.

I guess that’s just one of the very few downsides that come with being a professional food blogger 😉
