"To suit our tastes, doubled the chipotles, topped with pepper jack and served on bun with lettuce, tomato and avocado slices. Delicious!"

"These were great! We did ours with ground buffalo and pepper jack. We could handle a bit spicier for our tastes, we know to adjust for more peppers next time."

"Sooo good!!! Very moist and so flovorful!! I did pump up the chipotles because we like spicy, and used pepper jack cheese because mozzarella did not sound right! but even my picky eater loved them!"

"Loved them! If you took a bite with the pepper they can some kick to them. Too spicy for my little ones, but my husband and oldest son liked them. Nice change from regular cheeseburgers."
