Chipotle Sliders

This recipe has to be the ultimate in a fast-fix mini burger with simply fabulous flavor! Creamy mayo, cheese and sweet Hawaiian rolls help tame the heat of the chipotle peppers. —Shawn Singleton, Vidor, Texas

    These were delicious and I made them for Memorial Day! I did use a little too much chipotle and they were extremely spicy, but the recipe was soooo excellent. Next time I will use a little less chipotle in the burgers and a lot less in the mayo-bit otherwise the sweetness of the bread tempers the spices perfectly. They didn't have the Hawaiian rolls at my store, but I used a similar substitute. I was impressed...and I'm usually not. Fantastic recipe, will definitely keep this in my list of favorites.

    So amazing! You can control the heat with how much chipotle you put in the mayo.

    Great recipe. I always use King's, Hawaiian sweet rolls to make sliders, no mater what the recipe. Great size to serve all your friends(by the bag).
