Vegetarian Mexi Sliders

a well stocked pantry

Somedays, yes even as a food blogger, dinner time still sneaks up on me. I’ll be working, being a mom, and a housekeeper and suddenly its 4:30 and I have no clue whats for dinner. This is when I turn to my pantry, stocked full of items I can easily pull together for dinner. One of my pantry staples are canned beans from S&W, they’re so convenient to keep on hand for quick meals. With a stocked pantry you’re never far away from a quick and easy dinner. And no matter your preference for beans, original, organic or low sodium, S&W has you covered. They’ve been providing quality beans for 120 years. Use this coupon code for S&W Beans and let me help you stock your pantry with the best premium beans on the market

Vegetarian Mexi Sliders

Beans are a great source of protein and when we go vegetarian, as we try to do at least once a week, I like to include them in my meal planning. With beans playing a starring roll I can whip up quick family favorites like chili, nachos, minestrone, tacos salad. Or my newest invention these Vegetarian Mexi Sliders, where beans literally replace the hamburger meat in a slider bun. Start to finish they can be done in under 30 minutes. So much easier than trying to go out for dinner, and cheaper too!

Small Size Big Flavor

I don’t know about you and your family but whenever we make anything mini-sized it’s instantly popular. Meatloaf Muffins, Mini Tacos, and these Vegetarian Mexi Sliders were no different. Cute, easy to eat and tasty too, no one will turn up their nose at a vegetarian meal again.
