My husband and I really enjoyed these. I forgot to put the cilantro in them, and did not have any mushrooms, but they were still delicious and the flavor was amazing. I sauteed the onions with one garlic clove, and added onion powder and about 2 tbsp. medium salsa. I would definitely make these burgers again, thanks for sharing :)
We really enjoyed these a healthy meal. Depending on the size of the chipolte pepper you use, these can get pretty spicy quickly. Next time I won't pull out the biggest pepper in the can. :) We combined this with a mexican coleslaw which helped calm the spice a bit. Definetly will make again!
My wife said it was one of the best burgers she has ever had, and I agree. I also had no trouble getting the patties to stay together.
