Mexican Chili-Cheese Burgers

    We liked these burgers, pleasantly different and very tasty. I didn't add the jalapeno peppers because I don't usually buy them. The kids thought to put sour cream on the burger instead of ketchup was strange, but after one bite they were requesting it (it was the perfect condiment). It was a great meal because it felt like we were eating tacos and not one of us reached for the chips. Perfect meal if you are trying to eat less and more healthy, a successful diet allows for some indulgences. Spices were great together! I recommend this one to others, the burgers were juicy. We also added onions, lettuce and another tomato.

    I just made these burgers again last night! These are so good- I make them with lean ground turkey instead of beef, and the veggies inside really keep the burgers moist. This is on my husband's list of favorites!

    Outstanding. In fact, I signed up and got an account just so I could review this. It tastes like a taco but significantly less messy. Delicious.

    Prepped the burgers in advance, subbing fresh oregano for dry. Chilled the patties for about an hour. They held together great on the grill. For a couple of the burgers, mixed half sour cream/half chipotle salsa for the spread. Yummy flavors, good burgers.

    Made these for a weekend dinner, using 93% lean ground, which I think now is a little too lean considering how many ingredients need to be mashed into it. 85% would be good, or cut down on the tomatoes. "Chili-Cheese" conjured up a much more sinful idea of a burger, and these don't really hit that mark. They're tasty, and I especially liked the cilantro, but I don't think I would make these for a crowd. CL's "Out-n-In California Burger" recipe is far better, and we'll be sticking with that in the future.
