Chicken Enchilada Sliders are the perfect party food you never knew, you always needed! Although I don’t watch much football, I have to admit I do love the food that comes along with it. These sliders make the perfect game day food and, since they’ll be gobbled up in minutes, I decided to use a couple shortcuts so that the recipe is as easy as can be to make!

Basically what you’re going to do is toss some cooked chicken with enchilada sauce, pile it on some slider buns, cover it all with cheese, and bake those babies until the cheese is all melted and delicious. Super easy, right? But wait! I forgot to tell you that you don’t even have to cook the chicken! I like to buy a rotisserie chicken for these because it cuts out the cooking time and they’re so easy to shred. And if you don’t use all of the chicken for these sliders, there are a million other ways to use it up! Sometimes shortcuts are just they way to go.

If you have a preference between red and green enchilada sauces, go ahead and use whichever one you like best! I personally like to use green on half of the sliders and red on the other half. That way, people can choose their favorite or try one of each. Selfishly, the other reason why I choose to do half green and half red is because I can never decide which one I like better so I have to have both! You might have some enchilada sauce leftover, depending on how saucy you make these sliders, I like to use the leftover sauce with my eggs the next day!

I use a combination on monterey jack and cheddar cheeses in these slider but you can play around with which cheeses you like best. You can also chop up some green onions or cilantro (or both) and mix them in with the chicken as well. I’m telling you, these Chicken Enchilada Sliders are hard to mess up and hard to not love! I just want to know one thing, are you team green or team red enchilada sauce?
