This was a great burger. It was very moist and flavorsome. Thanks for posting this recipe.

I've been using this recipie for several years now. My fiance absolutely loves them! I only use about 1/2 a package of taco seasoning, though. I feel like the whole package takes away the flavor of everything else. These are the moistest turkey burgers you will ever have.

These burgers are really good. They are very moist. They are very flavorful, just like a taco. I didn't have any cheese crumbles, so I used shredded cheese. They turned out just fine. This was very easy to make.(I made these the other day when my Kraft Food & Family book arrived in the mail.) My MIL liked them because they weren't as messy to eat as tacos.
