Ham and green chili pimento cheese sliders are the perfect balance of sweet and spicy! Canned green chilies are added to an easy pimento cheese recipe for a kick. Top the ham with the cheese and buns and then bake until golden.

Soup and sammy season is here to stay!

Yes, I will be saying that even if it goes back up into the eighties.

My new favorite sliders have to be these ham and pimento cheese sliders. The addition of the green chilies into the cheese is epic.

I used this flavor combo trick when I made my fave Instant Pot mac and cheese form my first cookbook.

Normally this time of year I go hard on the Southern Belle funeral sliders. Terrible name. Not one bit terrible sandwich!

These sliders use black forest ham which is the perfect combo of sweet and salty. The pimento cheese is like my classic pimento cheese recipe with the addition of spicy green chilies.

So brilliant if I say so myself.

I like to think these would be perfect on the side of a little lunch soup or served at your next football viewing party.

But not a real party per se because COVID.

Man, I cannot wait until we are able to look back on these times and say, “We got through it!”

Pass me a slider!
