The boys were in the mood for a burger…so I surprised them with these little Tex Mex sliders that combine spices and veggies, refried beans and Avocado Crema…yum yum yum!!!
Tex Mex Sliders
1 1/2 lbs ground beef/veal/pork mix
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon coriander
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup refried beans
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 green pepper, diced
1 Spanish onion, diced
1/2 cup shredded yellow cheddar cheese
6 potato slider buns
Season the meat mixture with the cumin, chili powder, paprika, coriander & salt. Shape into 6 small slider burgers. Heat the olive oil in a medium saucepan and sauté the green pepper and onion until tender (6-8 minutes). Heat the refried beans. Heat a grill pan; spray with cooking spray. Grill slider burgers 4-6 minutes on each side until desired degree of doneness; place some shredded yellow cheddar cheese on top of each slider during final minute of grilling. Make the Avocado Crema.
1/4 cup prepared guacamole
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 teaspoon each salt, chili powder & cumin
Using a whisk, combine all the ingredients in a bowl until creamy.
Scoop a spoonful of heated refried beans on each potato slider bun bottom. Spoon on some Avocado Crema. Layer with grilled burger, a little more Avocado Crema and the sautéed green pepper & onion mixture. Top with slider bun. Take a big bite of this little burger!
