Don't let their size fool you; these mini-burgers pack a flavorful punch.

Ingredients:

  1. Chipotle Yogurt Sauce:
  2. 1 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  3. 1 or 2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, chopped
  4. 1 teaspoon adobo sauce
  5. 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  6. Sliders:
  7. 1 pound ground beef chuck
  8. 6 whole wheat slider buns
  9. 1 1/2 slices mild cheddar cheese, quartered
Directions:

For sauce:
In a medium bowl, combine yogurt, chipotle pepper(s), adobo sauce, and cumin. Stir until well blended. Cover and chill to allow flavors to blend.

For sliders:
Shape beef into 6 patties about 3- inches in diameter. Cook beef on an outdoor grill or a grill pan over medium heat until center registers 160 degrees F with a quick-read thermometer, turning once during cooking. Remove from heat.

Spread 1 tablespoon (divided) Chipotle Yogurt Sauce, on top and bottom of each bun. Transfer each beef patty onto a bottom bun. Add a cheese quarter and top bun to each slider. Serve warm.

Recipe Variations:
Instead of Chipotle Yogurt Sauce and Cheddar cheese, top with Creamy Guacamole and Havarti, Provolone or smoked Gouda; or with Pimiento Cheese, sliced tomatoes and lettuce leaves.
