1 lb ground beef, 80% lean                                        Our favorite toppings:  lettuce, tomatoes   1/4 cup Davey's Salsa, Original or Hot                       pickles, onions, mayo, creole mustard,
1 cup shredded cheddar or favorite cheese              bacon, jalapenos, avocado                                                                                                        
Directions:

Mix all ingredients together.  Take ¼ cup of meat mixture and press into slider shape. 

Davey's Hint:  Use the salsa lid for perfectly uniform slider patties. Just press 1/4 cup of meat firmly into the lid, and turn over to place on waxed paper.

Place burgers on waxed paper in refrigerator for 1 hour.  Salt and pepper to taste.

 Spray grill with oil spray.  Grill until done, flipping only once.

Makes 10-11 slider patties.


Star Chips    

Star Spangled Salsa!

Easy * Delicious

 Ingredients:
Package white corn tortillas                                                Davey's Salsa- Original or Hot
Canola cooking oil                                                                3" star cookie cutter
Sea salt                                                                                 Cutting board

Directions:

Cut star shaped tortillas out of each corn tortilla.

 Heat oil to 325 degrees in a deep fryer or electric skillet.

 Drop stars into hot oil, being careful not to place too many per each batch so that they do not stick together.

 When you can visually see that the stars have cooked on one side, take basket and shake to turn them over, or flip with a fork.  Be ready to lift the stars out when they have cooked, but before they turn brown.  Ideally, they should have a touch of brown around the edges.  Drain on paper towel.  Sprinkle immediately and lightly with salt.

Option: Bake chips instead of fry!

 

Serve with Davey’s Treasures Salsa and enjoy!
