Beef and Chorizo Nacho Burger Sliders

Beef and Chorizo Nacho Burger Sliders

Being born and raised an Oklahoma girl, there’s not much I love more than a cheeseburger and “queso dip”.

In Oklahoma if you order “queso”, you’re basically ordering a nacho cheese dip. I found out very quickly when I moved to San Diego that California Mexican restaurants consider “queso” something totally different.

When I was 18, fresh to San Diego via Edmond, Oklahoma, I went to an authentic Mexican restaurant for a friends birthday dinner.

I was still a pretty picky eater at that time… it’s true, I am a full blown converted picky eater, turned, I’ll eat basically anything!

Needless to say, I was overwhelmed by the Mexican food menu so I just asked the waiter if I could have queso.  He looked at me really funny, then I said “you know, melted cheese”.  He literally brought me back a plate of melted, grated cheese. I said “thank you” and never tried to order queso in San Diego again, haha!

When my friends at NoshOn.It reached out to me and asked if I would like to participate in their upcoming #BurgerWeek, I knew that I wanted to create a burger that was a little bit different and totally me!

Queso Burger Sliders

This burger is both of those.  I also decided to make them into sliders because, well, I’m kind of on a slider kick right now and you’ll find out why next week 😉

I still make my queso cheese dip the good ‘ol Oklahoma way, Velvetta cheese and Rotel. You’re welcome to make your favorite cheese dip recipe, or purchase a jar of queso cheese dip and pour it over the top, either way, it’s cheesy deliciousness on top of meaty goodness!
