Baked Taco Burger Sliders. Separate slider bun tops from bottoms. Spread meat mixture over bottom buns. Spoon a little salsa over top of cheese on each slider.
The beef sliders are spiced-up with salsa and taco seasoning for maximum flavor and moistness in each bite. I grew up eating taco burgers at a local fast food restaurant. They no longer make the burger so I decided to make my own but wanted a smaller slider version. You can cook Baked Taco Burger Sliders using 8 ingredients and 5 steps. Here is how you achieve it.

Baked Taco Burger Sliders instructions

Spoon a little salsa over top of cheese on each slider. Place tops on sliders, pressing down gently to squish together, and brush tops with the melted butter..
- Cover dish with aluminum foil and bake covered for 10 minutes. Remove foil and bake an additional 10 minutes..
- If desired serve with traditional taco toppings such as lettuce, tomato, sour cream, extra salsa and/or guacamole, and any sides you want (I like Mexican rice or seasoned tater tots). Enjoy!.
That is not a good choice for this recipe because the sweetness of the bread isn't a good flavor match for the super savory taco meat. Bite-sized, easy to share, and full of tempting toppings, sliders are a fun food to make and eat. Whether they're mini burgers, slices of Spam, or even buffalo tempeh, everything tastes better tucked into a soft tiny bun. They're also highly portable and easy to hold, though not diminutive in flavor despite their scaled-down size. These juicy mini burger sliders have the same signature onion flavor as the Krystle Burgers and White Castle Burgers.
