Tips on how to build the tastiest BBQ Pork Pibil Sliders.

The process for making the shredded pork sliders includes spreading refried black beans, and using pork pibil.

First, you need the perfect slider bun. Visit your local grocery store and purchase the new King’s Hawaiian pre-sliced Slider Buns. These buns have an ideal size and shape for the BBQ pork sliders. Plus come already cut for easy handling.

Purchase one pound of pork shoulder and cut into chunks. If desired, choose pork loin for a leaner BBQ pork pibil option.

Prepare the marinade with sour orange juice (or standard orange juice), vinegar, cumin, oregano, garlic, and achiote paste. Mix well and cover the pork with it. Marinade for thirty minutes covered and inside the fridge.

Cook the BBQ pork in the pressure cooker or the Instant Pot for 30-40 minutes. When ready, shred the pork and set aside.

Prepare the refried beans using either canned or homemade black beans. The refried beans are a spread used for the BBQ pork sliders.

For more flavor, the pork sliders need pickled onions garnishing. Cut one purple onion making thin slices, and chop one habanero pepper. Place the sliced onions and the habanero in a mason jar. Add one cup of warm water and half a cup of white vinegar. Season with salt and cumin seeds. Mix and let the onions rest inside the fridge for an hour.

We love to dress up the dogs and buy props for Instagram selfies. That way, everyone can create fun images to share on social media.

Football is such a fantastic game, no matter who the winner is, the excitement of the game is what counts, and of course, the half time show is always one that everyone expects too.

This year the show will be all about Latin rhythms, and we cannot wait to dance along. We live in Florida, so knowing that the BIG game will be nearby is also something that brings so much joy as Miami is the city hosting the tournament.
