I grew up eating taco burgers at a local fast food restaurant. They no longer make the burger so I decided to make my own but wanted a smaller slider version. A "funeral sandwich" recipe was my inspiration in developing this slider.

Ingredients

3 lb
ground beef
1 medium
onion, finely diced
3/4 c
taco seasoning mix
2 c
water
1 jar(s)
mild taco sauce
8 oz
cheddar cheese, finely shredded
24
dinner rolls
1/2 c

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a Dutch oven boil ground beef, in enough water to cover, until no longer pink. Break beef up into very small pieces as it is cooking. Drain and discard water.
2
Return ground beef to pan and add the diced onion, taco seasoning mix, and 2 c. water. Mix thoroughly then simmer until all liquid is absorbed.
3
Grease a large cookie sheet. Split all the rolls in half and spread a thin layer of taco sauce on each half. Lay the bottom halves on the cookie sheet.
4
Layer the tops of the bottom halves in the following order: 1 tablespoon of grated cheddar, 2 tablespoons of taco meat, 1 tablespoon of grated cheddar, top bun.
5
Once all 24 rolls are assembled, brush the top of each roll with the melted butter.
6
Cover the rolls with aluminum foil. Bake in 350 degree oven for 10 minutes. Remove the foil and bake another 10 minutes.
