  1. On a clean cutting board, wash and chop cilantro and onions separately. In a large bowl combine sausage, salsa, onions, cilantro and seasonings. Form into 4 to 5 long oval patties, depending on size desired. Over medium heat on grill, cook burgers on each side until done (no longer pink in the center), about 10-15 minutes** (depending on size). Melt cheese if desired over top before serving. Serve with rolls, salsa or favorite condiments and tortilla chips. Refrigerate leftovers.

Can only give this 4 stars because I had to adjust it a bit for my family's taste. It was a bit spicy for my kiddos, otherwise the recipe is great as is. I had to double the recipe. I used 1 lb. sausage and 1 lb beef. I think I will use 1/2 tsp cumin instead of 1 tsp.

Great Burgers!! I used ground turkey instead of the sausage, and I didn't have any chili powder so I used Pampered Chef Southwestern Seasoning (about 1 tablespoon), also increased the cumin a little. Added 1 can of chopped green chilis and a handful of fresh breadcrumbs. The burgers wouldn't have held up to the grill but cooked up nicely in a pan on the stovetop in about 5-6 minutes per side. They didn't have sliced smoked cheddar at my grocery store so I used Chipotle Cheddar (Sargento brand), and it was nice and smoky and added extra bite. No extra condiments needed!!

Oh my goodness... GOOD burger!!! Made these for my bf and I tonight. I am not a fan of plain grilled burgers, but these HIT THE SPOT! Recipe yields 4 PLUMP burgers. I can normally eat 2, but tonight, all I could manage was 1 (haha!). All I did to modify the recipe was to add a little more than half of a 4 oz. can of mild diced green chilies (drained) and 1/4 c. of plain bread crumbs per other's suggestions, and, instead of grilling, broiled for approximately 4-5 minutes per side. Topped with mild cheddar (my local grocer did not have the smoked variety) and salsa and served with nacho Doritos and homemade pink lemonade to wash it all down. Yum-o!
