These weren't bad but they didn't blow me away. I doubled the cumin and chili powder. I omitted the jalapeno all together because I don't like a lot of heat. I added half of a green bell pepper for some more color. They didn't have a ton of flavor but it's a good starting point for a recipe. I'll be making them again for sure with a few changes. I liked the texture a lot.

These were yummy! I took the advice of other reviewers and doubled the cumin, chili powder, garlic, and used a whole jalapeno (seeded). They were nice and spicy. I couldn't taste the chorizo, so I would leave it out next time (or add much more). Tried them as burgers (it made 4) with avocado and red pepper. I am not sure if I would recommend the large size though, they were hard to flip, and fell apart a bit. I did cook them at least 3 minutes per side to make sure the egg was cooked through. Took me close to an hour from start to finish. Great flavor. Thanks, toni!

I can't say that DH loved these but I really enjoyed this recipe, I increased most of the ingredients and used dryed pepperoni in place of the chorizo, I chilled the mixture for a couple of hours before shaping, thanks Toni!...Kitten:)

These were very good, just not quite as flavorful as I expected, considering the ingredients. I'll make them again, but I think I'll double the cumin, chili powder, and garlic next time (I like big flavors!). I made them as a side dish, skipped the chorizo, and topped them with sour cream and salsa verde. Yum!

Much easier to make then the long list of ingredients would have you believe. In 45 minutes I made these, made Spanish rice, and baked homemade corn chips for a healthy latin inspired meal. These held together very well and would be a good Mexican style burger. The only problem I had was figuring out appropriate size. I only got 7 out of them. Omitted the chorizo and used cooking spray. Easy to make with what I normally have on hand. Thanks toni!
