Reviews for Chicken Taco Burgers
"I did not use the toppings that the recipe suggested, as I have this in a Taste of Home cookbook and they were not included in the recipe. Instead we used monetary cheese with jalapenos, salsa, and sour cream. My husband said that he was pleasantly surprised at how flavorful the burgers were. We will definitely make these again!"
"Delicious! I add an extra pound of ground chicken to the recipe. It is still gooey but I am able to form them into patties."
"One word - DELICIOUS!"
"made this and it was DELICIOUS, I wasn't sure how the patties were going to turn out... trying to form the patties the chicken seemed gooy, but once cooked they formed perfect size patties and were good....I will make again."
"Made these and loved them very much. Would recommened them!!!"
"By the way, something is wrong with the picture of the burger. It has a white prop in place of the burger shown in the magazine."
"Awful, just awful. I agree with the previous poster who said there is not enough binding agent. I followed the ingredients exactly and ended up with a big glob of slimy goo that was impossible to form into burgers and grill. I ended up adding tons of bread crumbs. The flavor was lacking and they came out dry. What a waste."
" chicken is too moist to grill on a BBQ. Will fall through the rack!! Not enough binding agent to hold them together. I recommend pan grilling instead. "
