Texas Cheeseburger Sliders

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.
