These are wonderful! Instead of making these as a burger, I rolled them into little meatballs, and served with whole wheat pasta, asparagus and a little extra virgin olive oil, and everyone gave them rave reviews! Will definately make again!



FABULOUS!! Moist, juicy and full of taste. I sauteed the chopped chiles, onion and garlic in about 1 tsp olive oil just to soften before adding to meat. Used chiles from the garden that have just a touch of heat (not even sure what kind they are),so I also added a couple of dashes of hot (habanero) sauce, which gave the burgers just the right kick. I had about 1.5 to 2 lbs of meat so I just sort of estimated the proportions of everything else. Also omitted the ginger (didn't have & not crazy about)and reduced the cumin as per other reviewers. Served them topped with pepper jack cheese on whole wheat buns with garden-fresh corn on the cob and sauteed zucchini. SUPER yummy!



I use this recipe regularly when my boyfriend and I are trying to cut fat. I use the ingredients as listed, but increase the worchestershire because I like it! I've found that the smaller you chop the onion, pepper and cilantro, the less likely they are to fall apart.
