I literally thought that King’s Hawaiian sweet, melt-in-your-mouth Hawaiian rolls could not get any better, until they introduced Jalapeño Rolls!

Say what?! Combining sweet & spicy flavors is one of my favorite things to do, and King’s Hawaiian just did it in the best possible way!

I knew that I wanted to create a delicious recipe for the upcoming Cinco De Mayo holiday with these tasty new rolls, so I decided to keep the sweet & spicy flavor profile going with roasted jalapeño & honey marinated carne asada!

The carne asada was so flavorful, topped with a little spicy cheddar cheese & fresh guacamole on the King’s Hawaiian Jalapeño Rolls, pure perfection!

Roasted Jalapeño Honey Carne Asada Sliders Ingredients

Carne Asada Sliders Ingredients

  • 2 jalapeños
  • 4 garlic cloves (diced)
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 tbsp lime juice

Carne Asada Sliders Instructions

Begin by roasting the jalapenos, either on the grill or under the broiler in the oven.

Once the skin on the jalapeños is black and bubbling, remove from the heat and place in a plastic bag. Zip close and set aside for 5-10 minutes. Remove from the bag and peel the skin from the jalapeños.

De-stem and seed the jalapeños, then place in a blender or food processor with the garlic cloves, olive oil, honey, lime juice, cumin, salt and pepper. Blend until smooth. 

Place the steak in a casserole dish and pour the marinade over the steak.

The guacamole recipe is up to you, but I highly recommend this Grilled Pineapple Tomatillo Guacamole to add to the sweet, spicy, grilled flavor of these sliders!

So much deliciousness in one little dish, can’t wait to grill these up all summer long!
