"What a tasty appetizer! Love the Taco flavor, but the addition of the barbecue sauce gives it a surprise smokey sweetness. Great to serve to a crowd or just for a late night snack."

"I have made this several times and taken for functions, it is always a hit and everyone wants the recipe. I add a can of refried beans to the hamburger mix and use taco sauce in place of the barbeque sauce. I also serve it with Frito Scoops."

"I made this for an appetizer for my daughter's

thirteenth birthday party It was a great hit with all ten guests!
I did omit the honey barbecue sauce and used medium hot salsa. Also instead of cheddar cheese I used mexican.
Thank you for this great appetizer!"
