cowboy caviar beef sliders

 

This past fall I promised my kids that I would make them a Cowboy meal.  Evan though I hadn’t a clue what kind of meal I would actually end up making them.

You see, last fall, we put hardwood floors in our dining room, which is also the same room where our fireplace is. My oldest son didn’t like the idea of getting rid of our carpet.   I told him that the new floors would make our dining room seem like a “lodge” and after the floors were put in I would make him a Cowboy dinner.

Our floors were completed in September, and I finally got around to this ” Cowboy” meal this past week.   And we actually didn’t eat this dinner in our new dining room, but as we were watching the “game”  on TV.

Life. You know?

I have a good friend who makes cowboy caviar for get-togethers.  I thought that cowboy caviar would go awesome on a beef slider.  Yes.  This was very tasty indeed!  I love that cowboy caviar actually has lots of goodness in it.  Corn, avocado, tomatoes, beans.  But I also love that these Pepperidge Farm Slider Buns contain no artificial flavors or any high fructose corn syrup.   They are also super tasty and perfect for appetizer-sided sliders or sandwiches.

These beef sliders had loads of flavor.  I marinated these beef tips in chili powder, paprika, and other spices.   The cowboy caviar has cilantro and lime juice for an extra pop of flavor.  I loved these sliders and so did my family.
