I mixed the hot sauce & salsa into the meat & then made it into a pattie (I only did this for myself as I thought it would be too hot for the kids) and it wasn't hot at all. I also used Monterey Pepper Jack to add a kick now that helped. Okay burger sorta plain but a nice change. Thanks Tim. Read More

I guess I just don't enjoy the flavor of salsa on my hamburger... I would have preferred adding the hot sauce along with a few other ingredients to the burger instead or leaving the burger plain and adding the cheese and some grilled onions... anything but the salsa. Thanks anyway for the post Tim. It DID sound good... Read More

I mixed the salsa and tabasco right into the burgers and added a bit of garlic powder and black pepper. I also only did half the tabasco and it was fine. I cooked the burgers on a grill pan until they were almost done then broiled for around 8 minutes with the cheese melted on there for the last 3 minutes. Very easy very tasty. Read More

Very nice! I seasoned my meat as usual with fresh garlic onions salt pepper an egg and breadcrumbs. I also coarsly shredded the cheeses. I've made this several times; on the grill and in the oven and is always a crowd pleaser. Read More

This is a very easy burger to make. I like that everyone can make the toppings as spicey or not as they want depending on personal taste. I think however next time I might add more "stuff" to the burger itself. Thanks for the recipe Tim. Read More

This turned out really good. I did sprinkle some hamburger seasoning over the patties before cooking. I only used half the hot sauce called for as I wasn't sure my husband would like his burger otherwise. As these turned out he made a comment at the dinner table on how much he liked this dish so Thanks! Read More
