    These burgers are amazing! I added 2 Tbsp of taco seasoning but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Topped them with guacamole, shredded lettuce, and salsa. Amazing!

    My family absolutely loved these burgers. I don't know why I didn't think of using tortillas before. I will certainly use them again.
