sweet and spicy party sliders

we had my cousins over for dinner last weekend.. remember i bragged about them here.. i also made spicy buttermilk onion rings.. and if you haven't tried them they are a must.. both my cousins' business and the onion rings!!
(ohh i was reminded i didn't make the onion rings for them i made them the next day... oops my bad..  sorry you missed out they were good..)
 
when i asked my cousin, danny (he goes by dan now but well i know him as danny) what he wanted for dinner he picked the "spicy slider" option.. which delighted me, i love sliders.. i order them whenever i see them on a menu.. they are so cute.. i ended making 4 different kinds..
and they were all yummy (or so i think ha)!!
 

i made spicy lamb sliders my recipe found here..


then i made spicy italian burgers..  recipe coming next week.. soo simple tho i basically took hot italian sausage added more crushed red pepper made burger patties... grilled them.. in the mean time i sauteed onion, red and yellow pepper with a dash of cayenne.. and topped with some marinara that i  added about a 1/2 tblsp. of crushed red pepper to.. super simple.. yet very flavorful and good.. this one above didn't have it (i forgot for the picture) but i served them with a slice of provolone.. and a squeeze of lemon..

 
i also served my favorite turkey burger ever.. my spicy turkey slider recipe found here..


and then these hot spicy little guys, which are my pepper lover crunch burgers.. they had jalapenos, habaneros and thai chilies in the meat and topped with hawaiian spicy bbq chips.. talk about hot.. but omg soo freaking good!!

pepper lover crunch burgers

prep time: 10 minutes
cooking time: 10 minutes
servings: 8 sliders


1 1/2 lbs. ground hamburger
1 jalapeno, habanero and thai chili, cut in half, seeds removed and then ran through a food processor and made into a paste (add more peppers if you want a more intense heat.. or even leave in the seeds which adds even more spicy.. always be careful and wash your hands after handling peppers)
salt and pepper
2 to 3 tsp. crushed red pepper
sweet n spicy hawaiin bbq kettle chips (or any spicy chip you enjoy)
olive oil
split hawaiian sweet rolls

Combine meat, pepper paste, salt, pepper and crushed red pepper then form into 8 little burgers. Grill over a medium/high heat.. about 4-5 minutes each side..  brush your rolls with a little olive oil and grill them also.  remove from heat place the burger patty in your cooked roll and add crushed potato chips.. then add any other condiment you like... i offered pickles, onions, tomatoes, fry sauce, etc..

enjoy and get cook'n!!
