  1. Step 1

    Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add onion; cook and stir until soft, about 5 minutes. Add beef; cook, stirring to break into very small pieces, until browned, about 5 minutes. Drain any excess grease. Stir in 2 tablespoons water and taco seasoning; cook until water evaporates, about 5 minutes.
  2. Step 2

    Let beef mixture cool completely, about 10 minutes. Stir in Chihuahua cheese.
  3. Step 3

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  4. Step 4

    Cut tops off jalapeno peppers and scoop out seeds and ribs. Stuff with beef mixture, using the thick end of a chopstick to pack in mixture. Stack upright against the edge of a casserole dish.
  5. Step 5

    Bake in the preheated oven until jalapeno peppers are soft, about 45 minutes.
  6. Step 6

    Refrigerate jalapeno peppers until stuffing firms up, 1 to 2 hours.
  7. Step 7

    Combine 1/4 cup water, sugar, and yeast in a small bowl. Let stand until foamy, about 5 minutes.
  8. Step 8

    Combine flour, 1 egg, milk, and butter in a large bowl. Pour in yeast mixture; mix until well combined. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead until mostly smooth but slightly sticky, about 5 minutes.
  9. Step 9

    Form dough into a ball and place in a lightly greased bowl. Cover with a towel and let rise, about 20 minutes.
  10. Step 10

    Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Turn dough out onto a floured surface; push down to knock out air. Form into 1-inch buns and arrange 1 inch apart on the baking sheet. Cover with the towel and let rise until puffy, about 1 hour.
  11. Step 11

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Brush tops of buns with beaten egg.
  12. Step 12

    Bake buns in the preheated oven until tops are golden brown, 6 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack and let cool, about 10 minutes.
  13. Step 13

    Reduce oven temperature to 200 degrees F (95 degrees C).
  14. Step 14

    Slice cold jalapeno peppers into 1/4-inch thick rings. Cut buns in half. Sandwich jalapeno pepper rings in the buns and secure with a toothpick. Arrange sliders in a casserole dish. Cover with aluminum foil.
  15. Step 15

    Bake sliders in the preheated oven until warmed through, about 10 minutes.
