Fiesta Chicken Sliders with Green Chile Queso

Fiesta Chicken Sliders with Green Chile Queso


Shredded Chicken

1 rotisserie chicken, shredded

½ c mild taco sauce

1 TB taco seasoning

Green Chile Queso

2 TB butter 

1 TB garlic paste 

1 TB AP flour 

12 oz evaporated milk 

½ c Monterey jack cheese, shredded 

½ c cheddar cheese, shredded 

½ c half and half 

 Salt and pepper to taste 


18 King’s Hawaiian slider buns 

Fresh cilantro


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

In a bowl, combine shredded chicken, taco sauce, and seasoning. Set aside. 

In a saucepan over medium heat, combine butter until melted. Add garlic and stir. Next whisk in the flour. Cook for 3-5 minutes. Add evaporated milk and stir until the mixture begins to bubble. Reduce heat to medium low and add in the cheeses. Once cheese is melted add in half and half and stir to combine. Add in 505 Southwestern Hatch Valley Flame Roasted Green Chile, salt, and pepper. Taste and adjust seasoning. 

If your queso is too thick, add additional half and half. Reduce heat to low and keep warm until assembly.

To assemble the sliders, place buns on a lined baking sheet. Top bottom half with a spoonful of chicken and queso and add the top bun. Heat in the oven for 5-8 minutes or until the chicken is warm. Remove from oven and add a layer of guacamole and cilantro to the top of the chicken and queso. 

If you like it extra cheesy, serve with a bowl of remaining Green Chile Queso for dipping… why not!
