I like to ground my own beef. Just take slightly frozen beef cubes and process in a food blender till ground! It works like a charm.Then you know what is in your ground beef.

This is fantastic! The kids loved it. I used ground turkey and one chipotle (threw the chile, salsa, and turkey into food processor to blend). Thanks for sharing!

Fantastic Burgers, packed with flavors and very easy to prepare. As with the other reviewers, I was worried that the patties would fall apart during cooking due to the salsa, but that didn't happen. The burgers cooked marvelously. Served it with a side of fries topped with cheese and a spicy mayo dip. Will be making this again!
