The first comment I got about this burger was, 'I would pay twenty dollars for this...WOW!' I serve these on a whole wheat bun, with blue cheese and horseradish mayo.

Absolutely fantastic! Did once without cilantro (at the request of my mother) and then again later when she wasn't visiting. Personally I think the cilantro really adds some zip to the whole thing - don't leave it out if you have the choice! Still even without the cilantro this is a GREAT recipe. Lots of zing and heat. Edit: If you're having trouble forming a patty with this recipe - An easy trick is to use two forks so that you don't over-handle the meat. Overlap pieces together start small and work your way up keeping the patty even throughout. Don't smash anything down! You might want to add a cup of oatmeal or breadcrumbs if you're really having a hard time of it.

We have made this burger several times already... it is so delicious! It's also a fun one to experiment with adding new and unique ingredients. A word of caution if you experiment though.... my husband and I did find is that if you add too many 'wet' ingredients the burgers won't stick together and become difficult to grill. Perhaps the addition of breadcrumbs or instant rice might combat this. Otherwise this burger gets our stamp of approval! It is PACKED with flavor!

These burgers were absolutely delicious so flavorful. Served them at a BBQ and everyone ate them up. Loved the horseradish mayo a real bonus.

Good taste but it was pretty hard to get them to stick together. If you squeeze the patties out inside paper towels before putting them on the grill that helps.

I made these for a house full of teenagers and I got great reviews. They said they were the best homemade hamburgers they ever had.

Loved this burger!I never leave comments for recipes but this was so good I just had to!I used sour cream instead of yogurt and I can defintly see why some people used breadcrumbs to help hold it together.I didn't but I dont see how they could do anything but help I used a george foreman grill so no flipping was needed so that probably helped keep it together.So yummy defintly a must try!
