I stress eat during big events. And...election night is one of those times,(thank goodness I don't have Halloween candy in my house!) so here are some sliders that are quick, easy and patriotic!
Red, White and Blue Sliders
1 large clove garlic, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 12 ounce jar roasted red peppers, drained (1-1/2 cups)
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 roasted chicken, sliced thin or shredded
1/2 teaspoon paprika
16 dinner rolls (about 2 1/2 inches in diameter), split and the insides removed
1 5 ounce bag blue potato chips, such as Terra Blues
In a blender, puree the roasted peppers, black pepper, cayenne pepper, garlic, olive oil and paprika.
Slice or shred the chicken (I cheat and pick up a roasted chicken in the deli). Layer the bottom half of each roll with the potato chips, chicken and about 1 tablespoon of the red pepper puree. Top with the remaining roll halves.
