Grilled Pollo Asado Sliders with Frijoles Spread

Pollo Asado and Frijoles Refritos

Del Real Grilled Chicken Leg Meat and Del Refried Beans tucked into a savory Hawaiian bun with pepper jack and cheddar cheese and warmed on the grill. Easy, tasty, and feeds a crowd of 12, or 6 if 2 sliders per persons. Just add hot pepper rings, sautéed red onions, and chipotle mustard and you’ve created a crowd pleasing appetizer that can be made outdoors!

Serves 6

10 Minutes

15 Minutes

  • 1 pkg (32 oz) Del Real Pollo Asado Grilled Chicken Leg Meat (16 oz makes 12 sliders)
  • 1 pkg (24 oz) Del Real Frijoles Refritos refried Beans (12 oz makes 12 slicers)
  • 1 large red onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil (I use canola)
  • 1/2 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1-2 teaspoons brown sugar, to taste (depending on sweetness of onions)
  • 12 savory Hawaiian Rolls
  • 1/2 cup Chiptole Mustard
  • 6 slices of sharp or mild cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup hot pickled pepper rings or pepperoncini slices, drained
  • 6 slices of pepper jack cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Cojita cheese

Heat your grill to 400 degrees. Remove chicken and beans from refrigeration. Slice 1/2 of the chicken in thin strips; set aside. Wrap remaining chicken and refrigerate for another use. Stir beans in original container. Over hot grill or open flame, sauté onions in oil, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add brown sugar, vinegar, and salt to taste. It is easier to work with rolls attached so don't separate until sliders have been baked. Cut rolls horizontally, and flip open. Place bottom rolls, cut side up, onto a grill pan or disposable aluminum pan. On bottom rolls, spread mustard to the edges. Layer with cheddar cheese, chicken, onions, pickled peppers, and pepper jack cheese. Spread cut side of top rolls with refried beans, and invert over pepper jack cheese. Bake on a 400 degree grill, closed, for 15 minutes. If grilling open cover with foil for the first 10 minutes. Sprinkle with Cojita cheese and serve. Yields: 12 sliders or 6 servings if 2 per person
