Recipe Tips

The chipotle chiles add heat to this recipe. Increase or decrease the heat level by using more or less of the chipotle chiles in adobo sauce. Place any remaining chipotle chiles and adobo sauce in a freezer container and freeze for future use. Just slightly thaw, and chop up some of the chiles in your taco fillings or to spice up soups and stews.

Recipe Comments and Reviews


The 3/4 tsp extra flour was for half a batch


I had just made dough for hamburger buns & had all the ingredients for these sliders, so I decided to them a try. I made some smaller buns & for this recipe I think the smaller buns are a good idea. I did add 3/4 teaspoon extra flour. I also used sharp cheddar ( it's what I had). Will make again! Very good.
