Reviews for "Little Kick" Jalapeno Burgers
Sort By :
These burgers were excellent, my whole family loved them!!
I used one jalapeno instead of 2 & made 4 burgers instead of 6. The only thing I will do different next time is eliminate the water - it seemed like it made the raw meat too thin & hard to handle. Otherwise, it was very tasty & a healthy alternative to beef burgers. Next time I will serve it with sweet potato fries.
I only used half of the jalapenos, garlic, and cilantro and these were still delicious. I will be making them again!
Excellent flavor! Made them with ground beef instead of turkey; topped them with lettuce, tomato and avocado.
I made this for dinner last night and I thought it was pretty good. I made 6 burgers out of it as it said 6 servings but by the time the burgers were off of the grill they were a little small. Only because I didnt think it was spicey enough I am going to use a few more Jalapenos next time. If it is your first time making this I would start with what is recommended and then go from there. I will more than likely make these again.
