Southwest Sliders w/Chipotle Mayo

I have been inspired!  I saw some cute little home style burgers at a restaurant the other day, and thought I would give my hand at them, but because I can't leave anything alone... I decided to spice things up a bit and add a little Southwest pizazz!!

I like to call them Southwest Sliders, but William refers to them as  SKY BURGERS. ( free iPhone app, you'll have to check it out)

Southwest Sliders w/Chipotle Mayo

  • 2 lbs. Ground Beef
  • 1 (10oz) can Rotel original
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  1. Mix Beef, rotel, eggs, onion powder and garlic salt
  2. Form into 2 inch balls and flatten into a patty (making middle slightly indented)
  3. Preheat Grill on Medium heat  cook for 15 minutes, turning halfway through.

Chipotle Mayonnaise
  • 1 c  mayonnaise or light mayonnaise (do not use salad dressing, it will be too watery)
  • 2 chipotle peppers with 1 tbs adobo sauce
  • juice of 1 lime
  1. Chop peppers,adobo sauce, and lime juice in a food processor until smooth texture.
  2. Stir mixture into Mayonnaise
  3. Keep refrigerated up to 2 weeks. Use Mayo on Burgers, Sandwiches, and Fajitas.
Spread mayo on both sides of potato roll, add a southwest patty, and top with all your favorites.
We used American Cheese, lettuce, tomato, and red onion.


  1. how do you manage to take such great pictures of food?! those look GREAT!!!

  2. Stacey, Thank you!! I had someone recommend to me to fit as much of the food in the frame as possible, I think that is the best trick. But I promise, most of my pics arn't that great. :)
