Dice the onion and mince the garlic. Cook the onion and garlic with the olive oil in a medium sauce pot over medium heat until the onion is soft and translucent (about 5 minutes).
Rinse and drain the pinto and black beans in a colander. Add the drained beans, BBQ sauce, and smoked paprika to the sauce pot with the onions and garlic. Stir to combine and then cook over medium-low heat until warmed through (stir occasionally).
While the beans and BBQ sauce are heating, prepare the slaw. Add the cabbage coleslaw mix to a large bowl. Slice the green onions and add them to the bowl with the cabbage.
In a separate small bowl, make the dressing for the slaw. Stir together the mayonnaise, honey, Dijon, vinegar, salt, and pepper until smooth. Add the dressing to the bowl with the slaw mix and green onions, then stir to combine.
To make the sliders, add a heaping 1/2 cup of BBQ beans to each bun, then top with 1/2 cup of the slaw. Enjoy!
This would make an awesome (and easier to eat) wrap sandwich. Simply wrap the beans and slaw up in a large tortilla and enjoy!
