  • small saucepan
  • sheet pan


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 2 large garlic cloves
  • 1/3 cup diced onion


  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
  • 8 whole-wheat (or whatever you prefer!) slider buns, toasted


  • chopped tomatoes, chopped cilantro, jalapeños, sour cream, crushed tortilla chips


  • For the burgers: Add ground beef, chili powder, salt, oregano, cumin, garlic, and onion to a medium bowl. Mix mixture just until combined. Form into 8 patties. 
  • Make the queso: Add butter to a small saucepan. Turn the heat on medium and once butter has melted, whisk in flour. Cook for 30 seconds. Turn the heat on low, and slowly whisk in milk. Bring the mixture up to a boil and reduce to a simmer until thickened, about 3-4 minutes. Once thickened, turn the heat off and slowly whisk in shredded cheese. Season to taste with salt and pepper and keep warm while the burgers cook. 
  • While the sauce thickens, heat a cast-iron skillet to a medium-high heat. Once hot, add the burger patties and cook until seared, about 3-4 minutes for medium. 
  • To assemble. Place patties on buns, cover with queso and then top with chopped tomatoes, cilantro, sour cream, jalapenos and crushed tortilla chips.
