Mini Mexican Elk Sliders

Instead of making tacos for dinner, try using the similar ingredients and seasonings to make these Mini Mexican Elk Sliders.  Garnish with a Mexican cheese blend, fresh guacamole, sauteed onions and green chilies served on a toasted sweet Hawaiian roll. Enjoy!

Makes 6 Elk Sliders


  • 1 lb ground elk burger (bacon and jalapeno burger blend)
  • 1 white onion chopped
  • 2 green chilies sliced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • 6 Hawaiian rolls

Mexican Elk Slider Rub

  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon chipotle powder

Easy Guacamole Spread

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • squeeze of lime


  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees
  2. In a small bowl combine all seasonings together for the slider rub. Using your hands mix together ground elk burger and form 6 small slider shaped patties. Place elk on a plate and rub both sides with the seasoning ingredients.
  3. Heat cast iron skillet over medium-high heat, melt 1 tablespoon butter and add onions and green chilies. Saute for 5 minutes or until your onions and chilies begin to get a little crispy. Remove from skillet and set aside.
  4. Using the same cast iron skillet add remainder of your butter. Place burgers in skillet and cook for approximately 5 minutes on one side. Turn and continue to cook on the other side. Remove skillet from heat.
  5. Top each slider with shredded Mexican cheese blend, sauteed onions and chilies. Place cast iron skillet in oven for 5-7 minutes until the cheese has melted. Remove from oven.

Serve the elk sliders on a Hawaiian roll with avocado spread, onions and green chilies. I enjoy the taste of burnt cheese, so I scraped a little from the skillet and added it to the top of my Mexican Elk Slider! Deliciousness!
