 Now for the Tex- Mex Birthday, which we had over the weekend for multiple birthdays in our family. It was a huge success.  I had one a case full of Tex-Mex mixes, marinade, BBQ Sauce, and spread, that I won from Wendy from  The Weekend Gourmet  a couple of months ago, which I had been saving for this party. We had a lot of food, and it was very hard to take pictures , but I did get this one of the BBQ Turkey Sliders, and they were so good.  We had Scott's Guacamole, Enchiladas, Mexixan Rice,Cookwell's Two Step Chili mix, refried beans, and of course these cute little sliders.A good time was had by all!

BBQ Turkey Sliders
1 lb of ground turkey or beef
3/4 c. BBQ Sauce or mariande  I used Cookwell's  Pecos 86 BBQmarinade.
Lettuce, sliced tomatoes, cheese, or what ever you put on burgers
Mini Burger buns, or dinner rolls

Put ground turkey in large mixing bowl. Add BBQ sauce, and mix well  Form eight patties. Over med/high heat in pan or grill, cook 4-5 minutes per side.(depending on thickness of patties.)  Add your favorite burger toppings. We used the Cookwell's Pepper and Mustard Blend BBQ Sauce for dipping, so flavorful, with right amount of heat.
This Mexican Fiesta would be perfect for Cinco De Mayo ! enjoy!
