Taco Sliders

Taco Sliders or Taco Pockets // A hybrid of a taco and a burger that is wrapped in a tortilla. I like to stuff mine with lettuce, tomato, sour cream, and guacamole.

Popping in quickly to share a recipe that I made for Old El Paso. When Wes and I were first married, we made Taco Pockets about once a week. I forgot all about them.

I was asking what he wanted for dinner and he asked for Taco Pockets out of the blue, it had been years since I had made them. Hello old friend! Now that I have little ones, I like to make smaller slider size for little hands. These would also be a great starter at a barbecue. Kids and adults both love these.

These are so fun. A hybrid of a taco and a burger that is wrapped in a tortilla. I like to stuff mine with lettuce, tomato, sour cream, and guacamole. But you could add just about anything you like to the inside. I like to grill my sliders, but you could cook these in a skillet if you like. I like to keep the sliders pretty small so that it is easier to wrap the tortilla all around it. I would serve these with a side of Chili Cheese Fries and be very, very, happy.
