This was my first time using ground turkey - all I can say is Mmmmm! Very tasty and fresh! To lighten it up, I have used reduced fat Cheddar cheese and no-fat sour cream.

Big disappointment! I followed recipe exact and it just was not what I expected. My husband seemed to enjoy it a little bit more but I dont think I will make this again. Thanks for sharing!

It was my first burgers on the barbecue for this year. And it's so yummy. I used lean ground beef, mild salsa. And I served mine with a little bit of lettuce, sour cream and salsa. It was delicious. Thanks Redsie for this wonderful recipe. Made for Zaar Star Game.

Automatic 5 star. This was the first homemade burger my DD has eaten. The flavor was great, not overly spicy for DH and DD. I toped mine with lettuce tomatoe and a mixture of sour cream and salsa. DH and DD had it the traditional way with mayo and mustard and ketchup. Very good, will make again....Next time on the grill when it isn't 30 degrees outside.
