Get Your Burger On: Ole! Mexican-Style Chicken Sliders

Fire up the grill! It's National Hamburger Month, and we're celebrating with a weekly slider that tots can get their hands around. After last week's Italian-style pizza burger, we're heading south of the border with a Mexican-inspired patty that brings a lil spice to the bun. Using healthy ground chicken, we've added chopped jalapeño chiles (which can be adjusted for your offsprings' taste buds) and Monterey Jack cheese to complement the meat. This simple recipe is a quick weeknight family fix or a dish to serve up during your kiddo's next dinner playdate.
