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!!

I like this idea, it sounds really good, especially the part about the dinner roll, as I'm not a big eater. I will have to try making this Chimichurri.

Yep, I use the rolls and 1 is just perfect for my little 3 year old. It fits her hands perfectly and is just enough for her to eat. Also you don't have to feel so guilty eating just one of these if you are watching what you eat! :D

You're welcome! Thanks for commenting! By the way this sauce will keep for about a month in the fridge - if it lasts that long! :D

It sounds delicious. I'm always in the mood to try something differnt. I love tapas and I'm sure I would love to try these also. One thing that i really love is pupusas. You should try making those if you havent.

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!
