Madrina's Fritas - Cuban Style Sliders

My son, CJ, loves fritas (Cuban style sliders). There is a restaurant in Miami that is very known for theirs and he always thought those were the best.  That was until his godmother, Ana, made some for him this weekend.  OMG!! These ARE truly the best and easy to make! 

Madrina's Fritas

4 lbs ground beef
4 small spanish chorizo (remove casing)
4 medium onions
10 garlic cloves
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground oregano
1/2 teaspoon black pepper 
4 tablespoons Spanish paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons of salt

Add ground beef, chorizo, onions, and garlic to food processor and process until well blended, almost paste like. Remove beef mixture and season well with remaining ingredients.  Form into small burger patties.  You can cook them on the grill or fry them. If you don't have slider buns then adjust  patty size to the bun.  

This is traditionally served with very thin french fries.  Ketchup and mustard is totally optional, you really don't need it.   Enjoy!!!
