From 13 News This Morning

Spicy Cheeseburger Sliders

Total Recipe Time: 25 to 30 minutes

1 pound ground beef (96% lean)
9 small whole wheat hamburger buns, split, divided
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon ground chipotle chili powder
2 slices pepper Jack cheese, cut in quarters

Toppings:
Barbecue sauce, lettuce, tomato slices, pickles (optional)

Tear one hamburger bun into pieces. Place in food processor or blender container. Cover; pulse on and off, to form fine crumbs.
Combine bread crumbs, beef, garlic and chili powder in medium bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Lightly shape into eight 1/2-inch thick mini patties.
Place patties on grill over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 8 to 9 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 9 to 10 minutes) until instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers 160°F, turning occasionally. Evenly top with cheese during last minute of grilling.
Place burgers on bottoms of remaining eight buns. Top with desired Toppings. Close sandwiches.

Makes 8 sliders

Cook’s Tip: One-half teaspoon chili powder may be substituted for chipotle chili powder.

Cook’s Tip: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed ground beef. Color is not a reliable indicator of ground beef doneness.
