Hello everyone, My hubby is from South America and we eat a lot of food from South America - Argentina to be exact. Anyways, a new menu item I have implemented in our household is Chimichurri Sliders. Basically I have a George Foreman grill and cook mini burgers on it. Before making the burgers I usually make up a batch of Chimichurri - or else if I am in a hurry I buy some premade. Anyways, all I do it cook the burgers, and I buy some little prebaked dinner rolls, like Sunbeam rolls. I cut the rolls in half like a burger bun, put the burger patty on the bun, top with provolone or mozzarella cheese and then place a dollop of Chimichurri on top of the cheese or on the top bun. These disappear very quickly at home. Here is a recipe for the Chimichurri if you would like to try it: Ingredients: 1 bunch flat leaf Italian parsley 8 garlic cloves, minced 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil 1/4 cup red wine vinegar 1 teaspoon lemon juice 1 tablespoon diced red onion 1 tablespoon dried oregano 1 teaspoon dried basil 1 teaspoon black pepper 1/2 teaspoon salt Chop/grind parsley in food processor until finely chopped. Add remaining igredients and pulse until almost emulsified. You want a consistency like salsa. Enjoy! It is best to let your Chimichurri marinate for a few days to marry the flavors together. You can use the Chimichurri also as a meat marinade or to baste steaks while grilling. Yum!!

Thanks. By the way, what is a pupusa? I know what tapas are and love them too. Tapas as I'm sure you know are from Spain and my mother in law is from Spain. I just love them because everyone can a little bit of everything and sample so many different dishes. Anyways, do you have a recipe for pupusas? Thanks in advance!
