Mexican Beef Sliders with Salsa & Avocado Cream
These Mexican Sliders will be the star of your next party! Hot and spicy jalapeno salsa and smooth creamy Avocado are combined with tasty Beef burger patties.
600g lean beef mince
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 medium onion, grated or finely chopped
1 egg, lightly beaten (we love Woodland free range)
¾ cup red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
2 tablespoons tomato paste
½ cup fresh oregano, chopped (or 3 teaspoons dried)
2 teaspoons mild smoked paprika
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
½ cup parmesan, grated
1 avocado, mashed
½ cup sour cream
Juice and zest of 1 lime
1 cup cucumber ribbons
¾ cup fresh coriander leaves, chopped
1 red onion, very finely sliced
½ cup pickled jalapenos, finely chopped
8-12 sliders (or 4-5 normal sized burger buns), halved
8-12 small bamboo skewers if doing sliders
2-3 cobs sweetcorn, cooked and sliced into shards
Place all the patty ingredients in a bowl, season and combine. Shape into 8-12 small patties (or 4 large ones). Cover and refrigerate for 15 minutes. Preheat a BBQ or frying pan to a medium heat. Brush the patties with a little oil on both sides before cooking. The small slider patties will only need a few minutes on each side, turning once to brown both sides evenly, until cooked through. If you have 4 large patties this will take a bit longer.
Combine all ingredients for the Jalapeño salsa, drizzle with a little oil and lime juice and season as required.
Combine all the ingredients for the Avocado cream and season as required. You can add more lime juice to taste.
