  • “I had trouble keeping these together with all the fresh veggies. I minced the garlic since crushed didn’t seem to make much sense (maybe the author meant pressed?). I liked the flavor, but they were quite spicy and I know my hubbie wouldn’t eat them.”

  • “My family loves these burgers!I followed the recipe exactly except for omitting the hot sauce because I thought my kids would think they were too spicy.I’ll probably make these again and again.”

  • “We really enjoyed these burgers.Nice change from the normal every day variety.Lots of good flavour – not overpowering but definitely with a Mexican flair.Will definitely be having again. I Cooked these on the grill and melted Jalapeno Havarti cheese on top and added a skiff of mustard on the buns.Used canned jalapeno peppers instead of canned green chili’s by accident but a happy accident.”

  • “This is going to sound like a really weird review for this recipe!What happened was I was only going to make one burger and thought I was defrosting a patty of ground round but when I went to make the burger I discovered it was, in fact, a small steak – So I chopped the steak in small pieces and proceeded with this recipe. The end result was a SUPER burger. I followed your recipe putting all the spices, hot sauce and minced Jalapenopepper in with the chopped steak and browned it over high heat for apprx 5 minutes.The meat was still a touch pink, very moist and loaded with flavor. I put a slice of sweet onion, lettuce & tomato on the burger. I hope you will forgive my liberty with your recipe – It was very delicious thanks Darlene for posting”

  • “This was good, but I forgot to add salt! I added some 3/4 cup of oats and 1 egg to the mix to it seem like there was more meat.I also used 1 bell pepper and1 jalapeno and I didn’t think it was spicy at all. I think adding oats lowers the spicyness a lot, but if you do it that way consider adding a tad more chili powder, cumin, salt, pepper.Thanks”

  • “We all loved them, I was worried they would be too spicy for our DS’s, but wanted the full effect of this recipe and didn’t change a thing. Was glad nothing was ommited for my DS’s gave them thumbs up.Thank You Darlene Summers!”
