"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."
