These Jalapeño Pepper Jack Chicken Sliders with guacamole are one of my favorite game day recipes. They are always a crowd pleaser![pinit]
These Jalapeno Chicken Sliders with guacamole are not only adorable but delicious! Great for feeding a bunch of hungry guests at your Super Bowl party. I guarantee they will be gobbled up fast!
Honestly though, these are easy enough for even a weeknight dinner, paired with a salad or even better with my favorite side of Crispy Parmesan Onion Rings.
The jalapeno adds the perfect amount of heat, then the cheesy goodness of the jack cheese. Ohh and lets no forget the creamy guacamole to top things off.
I make a double batch of these every year for the Super Bowl, and they are always the first to get gobbled up.
