Fully loaded Tex-Mex turkey sliders

Coming up with something special for your barbecue can be a daunting task. These fully loaded Tex-Mex turkey sliders are piled high with personality and a fiesta of southwestern flavors in one spectacular hand-held package.
Prep time: 10 MinCook time: 6 MinTotal time: 16 Min


  • 24 ounces ground turkey
  • 4 teaspoons Mrs. Dash SW Chipotle Seasoning
  • 1 container Wholly Salsa, drained
  • 1 package Wholly Guacamole
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 8 slider rolls, cut in half and buttered


  1. Preheat your grill to high. You can make these on a gas, charcoal, tabletop or even a grill pan on your stove.
  2. Divide ground turkey into 3-ounce servings. Form into patties slightly larger than your bun. Make a slight indentation in the center of the burger to prevent it from doming up in the center. The indentation will rise as your burger cooks. Sprinkle each patty with about 1/2 teaspoon of the chipotle seasoning. Gently rub seasoning into top, bottom and sides of the meat.
  3. Grill until golden brown and slightly charred (about 3 minutes), turning once (cook for 3 minutes on the other side for medium). Try not to press down on your burger with a spatula. It causes the juices to escape and will create a dry burger! Add cheese for the last minute of cooking.
  4. Butter buns and place on grill (inside down) for about 1 minute, until they are golden brown with grill marks. Remove buns and prepare with 2-3 tablespoons of guacamole on the bottom bun. Place cheeseburger on top and 2-3 tablespoons of fresh salsa (or pico de gallo) on top.
  5. Enjoy!
