Texas Cheeseburger Sliders

These juicy sliders are packed full of Tex Mex flavours.




When we lived in Houston (about 18 yrs ago), I quickly realized that Mexican food had a definite place in that state. I loved being able to find a taco stand, and buy some authentic Mexican food. Our favorites were Tamales and anytime we would drive by a certain corner store that happened to double as a Mexican take out, we would grab some to take home. I found this recipe through Better Homes and Gardens, and I can see why they call them Texas Cheeseburgers. They have great Mexican flavors running through them. I decided to turn this recipe into sliders, since my daughter and I are not big beef eaters. I did switch up some of the flavours, by subbing some green chiles for poblano. I didn't want these to be too hot for the kids.




These were super tender and juicy. I loved the spicy chiles and hot sauce, paired with the subtle creamy Jack cheese. I decided to serve these on homemade scones, but they would also be good on biscuits, or even slider buns. We topped ours with nice thin sliced tomato and avocado, which I had dressed with lime juice and salt. Pickled jalapenos would have also brought a nice bite to these burgers. Super simple and super delicious!!

Texas Cheeseburger Sliders
Adapted from Better Homes and Garden
printable version 

1/2 small onion, grated
1 can green chiles
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 pounds lean ground beef
1-2 tsp hot sauce (we like Frank's), optional
8 ounces Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeno peppers or Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
slider buns, scones or biscuits
Assorted condiments such as tomato and avocado, grilled red onion

Mix the onion, chiles, chili powder, salt, and black pepper in a large mixing bowl; add ground meat and mix well. Shape mixture into 16 patties about 3/4-inch thick. Place on a tray; cover and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.

Place patties on the lightly oiled rack of the grill directly over medium heat. Grill for 8 to 12 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in centers registers 160 degree F, turning burgers once. Top burgers with shredded cheese during the last 1 minute of grilling.

Toast slider buns on grill rack, cut sides down, about 1 minute or until lightly toasted. Serve burgers on buns with desired assorted condiments. Makes 16 slider burgers.

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

Black Forest Roll Cake

Light and fluffy cherry and whipped cream filling is rolled in an airy sponge cake. 13 years ago, I made a dinner that I was totally proud of. Not only did it taste wonderful, it looks fantastic too. I was so proud of myself that I took a photo, which I wanted to share with my friends and family. Only I didn't know how I could share it with everyone, at the same time. Then a thought came to me- a blog!!!  I've always been a foodie. While growing up, I'd often watch talk shows, just to see the cooking segments. I'd sit with a pen and paper, quickly jotting down ingredients and directions, to hopefully recreate recipes at home. I still remember a beet salad I begged my mom to let me make, asking her to buy raspberry wine vinegar for the dressing. It turned out to be something neither of us enjoyed, and up until a few years ago, Mom still had the vinegar in her cupboard.  I first started my first blog, Hun... What's  for Dinner?, as a way to share recipes with my famil

Peanut Butter Confetti Squares

 A mixture of peanut butter and butterscotch chips, coat colourful marshmallows, for a simple, fun and easy holiday treat! My family calls these Galettes Froides, but most people know these as confetti squares. My grandmothers would make these for Christmas, and Mom has been making these desserts at Christmas time, since I can remember. They've always been my favourite because of the use of the rainbow marshmallows. There's just something about the colours that make these looks so yummy. These squares couldn't be more simple to make and I love that they are no bake as well. Some people use regular white marshmallows, some people use chunky peanut butter and some people add coconut. I like them each and every way I can get them. It wouldn't be Christmas without these confetti squares making an appearance.
