Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a mixing bowl, using your hands, gently mix together the ground beef and chorizo. Then mix in the butter pieces. Lastly, carefully mix in the salt & pepper.
2
Form into 2" wide by 1/2" patties. Refrigerate until 1 hour before guests arrive. Remove and let patties come to near room temperature.
3
Heat cast iron skillet to medium high. For first round of cooking, you may need a tablespoon or two of canola oil.
4
Place a few patties in the skillet. Don't overcrowd! They should not be touching! Sprinkle with a pinch of kosher salt & pepper. Let cook, without touching them, for 4 minutes on the first side. Flip and then cook for 3 to 4 minutes on the second side. Place in one of the slow-cookers that's been set on low; cover with lid.
5
Repeat until all sliders are complete, keeping warm in the slow-cooker. The second cooker [set on low] is for the fries. To keep the potatoes from drying out, spray with a bit of cooking spray.
6
Enjoy the food. Enjoy the game!
