Cinco de Mayo Sliders

Anyone have a good recipe for Mexican Sliders?
We're having an office potluck for Cinco de Mayo, (It's right around the corner folks), and I thought Mexican sliders would be a good idea to take.
Ideas Plez!!

    This is the way I always make them on Cinco de Mayo when I want to celebrate the Mexican victory in the battle that led to losing the war to the French.
     
    Mexican Sliders
     
    For the chipotle aioli
     One 7-ounce can chipotle chiles in adobo   4 cups  mayonnaise   Salt, to taste 
     
    For the sliders
     Three 1 ½-ounce burger patties   Salt and pepper, to taste   Ancho powder, to taste   3 mini hamburger buns, split   1/4 cup  onion, caramelized   6 slices pepper jack cheese   1 tablespoon  chipotle aioli   6  pickle slices
     
    Directions
     
    For the chipotle aioli
    Purée the chipotle peppers with the mayonnaise in a blender or food processor. Season with salt, to taste, and set aside.
     
    For the sliders
    Preheat the grill or griddle over medium-high heat.
    Season the beef with salt, pepper, and ancho powder, to taste. Place on the grill and cook for 4-5 minutes. Flip and cook until desired doneness is achieved. Meanwhile, toast the buns on the grill and heat the caramelized onions.
    Just prior to removing the burgers from heat, top with cheese. Remove from heat once the cheese has softened. Lay the beef patty on the bottom bun followed by the caramelized onion, 1 teaspoon chipotle aioli, and 2 pickle slices, then top with the other half of the bun. Repeat with all of the burgers.

    Sliders can be made with ingredients other than hamburgers..

    How about Steak tampiqueña, make sure you use a nice roasted hatch chili half and Jalisco cheese, fire roasted tomatoes mashed a bit with a fork and spread over the chili, with strips of fire roasted onions, or scallions if you prefer on top in a bolillo roll.

    Oh, I don't eat the darned things, I just make them for the fools who celebrate an American-made Mexican loss of a war with France.

    And you wouldn't like them because there are pickle slices!  So I doubt you ever made them at all!

    By the way Foodbme, I originally got that recipe after Googling. Just looking again I found a whole bunch of recipes for Mexican sliders.

    I would use a 1 to 1 mix of Ground Chorizo and 80/20 Beef. Form into patties. Then I would saute 1 large onion diced with 1 Jalapeno until light brown in a little oil. I would then add 1/2 bottle of mexican coke to the onion pepper mix and cook down until the coke was gone. This would be my burger topping. I would top that with some Crumbled Queso Fresco .
    Sauce would be 1 cup Mexican crema with 2 chiles from a can of chile adobo.

    I experimented making a couple different kinds of sliders this weekend and decided to scrap that idea and will be going with a Mexican Bean Salad. The sliders were ok but too labor intensive to make early in the AM on the potluck day.
    I can make this the night before:
    Mexican Bean Salad
    Ingredients
    1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
    1 (15 ounce) can kidney beans, drained
    1 (15 ounce) can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
    1 green bell pepper, chopped
    1 red bell pepper, chopped
    1 (10 ounce) package frozen corn kernels
    1 red onion, chopped
    1/2 cup olive oil
    1/2 cup red wine vinegar
    2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
    1 tablespoon lemon juice
    2 tablespoons white sugar
    1 tablespoon salt
    1 clove crushed garlic
    1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
    1/2 tablespoon ground cumin
    1/2 tablespoon ground black pepper
    1 dash hot pepper sauce
    1/2 teaspoon chili powder
    Directions
    In a large bowl, combine beans, bell peppers, frozen corn, and red onion.
    In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, red wine vinegar, lime juice, lemon juice, sugar, salt, garlic, cilantro, cumin, and black pepper. Season to taste with hot sauce and chili powder.
    Pour olive oil dressing over vegetables; mix well. Chill thoroughly, and serve cold.

    We're celebrating Cinco de Monday tonight. lleechef is making Red Beans and Rice.
     Cinco de Monday celebrates the great victory by forces under General Andrew Jackson in the battle of New Orleans. And that, of course, is the reason why every Cinco de Monday the traditional dinner is red beans and rice. Of course that holds true for uno, dos, tres and cuatro de Monday, too. Not to mention seis, siete, ocho -- well, you get the idea.

    I bought Cilantro but the bagger at the market didn't bag it so, I substituted Mexican Oregano and that was fine.
    I hate it when the don't bag stuff!
