Celery and blue cheese dressing help tame the hot sauce on these juicy burgers. For an even lighter version, pass on the buns and serve with lettuce leaves, sliced onion and chopped tomato. —Mary Pax-Shipley, Bend, Oregon

I think they were great. They are a nice change from the Turkey Burgers we normally make.

Great flavor. Skipped the bun and wrapped in a leaf of romaine lettuce with 1/2 TB of sour cream and .5 oz of Provolone cheese for less than 200 calories.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 18, 2010

Thought these burgers were delicious. My personal preference would be to slightly reduce amount of cumin and increase hot sauce. All in all most flavorful

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 23, 2010

Super messy, but fantastic. I left out the celery (don't like it) and piled on extra shredded lettuce. I also used Marie's Lite Blue Cheese Dressing - the fat free ones just taste funky to me.
