two elk sliders on buns with lettuce, red and yellow bell peppers and cheese

Chipotle Elk Sliders

Here’s a recipe you can use with your ground game, whether it’s elk, antelope, or deer.

I like to make a batch of these ahead of time, then vacuum seal and freeze them. You can take them right out of the freezer, put them on the grill or in a skillet and they’ll be a perfect medium rare by the time they’re cooked.

For extra flavor, you can’t go wrong with adding a little ground pork shoulder to your ground wild game.
