Spanish Sliders with Roasted Red Pepper Yogurt Sauce make a great summer meal or addition to your backyard soiree with your friends and family. These beef sliders are mixed with roasted red peppers, paprika and a dash of cayenne pepper, put on a slider bun and topped with a flavorful roasted red pepper sauce.



  • For the Spanish Sliders:
  • 1 lb. ground beef {we use 80/20}
  • 1 Tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 cup roasted red pepper, finely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper {cayenne}
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Dash of pepper
  • Sliders buns of your choice {I used Kind’s Hawaiian}
  • Lettuce for garnish
  • For the Roasted Red Pepper Yogurt Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup low fat plan yogurt
  • 2 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 cup roasted red peppers, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat your grill.
  2. In a large bowl combine the ground beef, yellow mustard, paprika, roasted red peppers, cayenne red pepper, minced garlic, salt and pepper. Using your hands mix the ground beef mixture until fully combined.
  3. Shape the ground beef mixture into 2 inch patties {about 1/4 cup of meat per slider which makes 8 sliders}.
  4. Place the sliders on the grill and let cook for 4-5 minutes, flip them over, and cook for 4-5 more minutes or until they reach your desired doneness. We cook ours to medium-rare which is an internal temperature of 130-135 F.
  5. While the sliders are grilling create the roasted red pepper yogurt sauce. Using a medium mixing bowl mix together the yogurt, extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, paprika, minced garlic and roasted red peppers. Add salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate the yogurt sauce until ready to serve sliders.
  6. Once the sliders are done grilling place them on the buns followed by a small slice of lettuce and the roasted red pepper yogurt sauce. Enjoy!
