“Everyone loves fajitas, right? How about taking the flavor profile up a notch into a perfect little bite. My chicken fajita sliders are a perfect way to enjoy everything there is to love about chicken fajitas – just now, they’re in burger form. Here’s what we’re in for. We saute onions and peppers until they’re super caramelized. Then we season ground chicken with everything you find in traditional fajitas – garlic, onion, a little but of cumin and chili powder. The sliders get formed and seared off until they’re nice and crusty – we give them a flip and that’s all she wrote. A little bit of guacamole and a squeeze of lime makes these sliders the perfect little bite.”
