Makes: 6 sliders
Prep Time: 20 minutes
1 pound ground sirloin
1 cup canned tomatoes with chiles, drained (such as Rotel)
1 teaspoon kosher salt
6 white slider buns
3 cheddar cheese slices, cut in half
1 cup prepared Texas-style chili (such as Wolf)
6 small butter lettuce leaves
1 jalapeño, sliced (optional)
1. Gently mix sirloin, tomatoes and salt in a large bowl. Pat meat into 6 even burger patties (about 2.5 ounces each).
2. Heat a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Toast bun halves in skillet to desired doneness; set aside. Sear burger patties to desired doneness (about 5 minutes on each side). Top evenly with cheese slices.
3. Pour chili into a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in the microwave for 2 minutes, stirring halfway through.
4. Assemble burgers: Lay a lettuce leaf on the bottom half of the buns. Top with cheeseburger, two heaping tablespoons chili, jalapeño slices (if desired) and top bun halves. Secure with a toothpick.
