If you enjoy guacamole on your hamburgers these California sliders are perfect for you. These sliders consist of well seasoned burger patties, pepper jack cheese, and guacamole. The hamburger patties can be pan fried or grilled. You can also add bacon if you want. You can also use your own guacamole if you want, or get it from the store. The serving size will vary but I would say each person could eat about 2 sliders each. This goes great for dinner but could also be served as an appetizer, and this is another great recipe to serve for game day. Enjoy.
1lb ground chuck
8 slider buns
salt and pepper (to taste)
4 slices pepper jack cheese
2 ripe avocados (peeled and pitted)
the juice of ½ lime
½ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon cilantro (chopped)
½ teaspoon fresh garlic (minced)
1 dash cayenne pepper
Step 1: in a medium bowl mash avocados together with the lime juice. Stir in cilantro and garlic. Season with salt and cayenne pepper. Cover and refrigerate until needed.
Step 2: Form ground chuck into 8 small patties. Heat a large skillet to medium-high heat. Add patties and cook, turning once until the hamburgers are fully cooked (the internal temperature has reached 160 degrees). Cut the 4 slices of pepper jack cheese into 4 squares. During the last few minutes of cooking top each patty with 2 of the cheese squares.
Step 3: Cut slider buns in half and spread butter on the cut side of each bun. Place cut side down into a skillet over medium heat and cook until golden brown on the bottom.
Step 4: To assemble sliders- place each hamburger patty onto the bottom half of a slider bun. Spread guacamole onto the bottom of the top half of the slider bun and place it over the patty.
