We love burgers and have them every Saturday in summer. We also have a favorite burrito recipe. One day, we got the bright idea to combine two of our favorite recipe. Voila! Our Southwestern Burgers were created. —Tammy Fortney Deer Park, Washington

"These burgers we're great. I added 1/2 cup of plain bread crumbs and 1 egg to make sure the burgers would bind. They turned out great. Very moist and flavorful."

"Because I didn't want to make this many burgers, I omitted the sausage, cut the ground beef to 1 1/2 lbs and halved the green chilies and seasonings...made into 5 patties. Topped with pepper jack. Delicious!"
