Recipe by Chocolatl

I couldn't find a good recipe for the kind of ground beef lettuce wrap that I wanted, so I created one. For the pepper sauce I definitely recommend Try Me Tiger Sauce, which has other flavors besides hot pepper. The burgers don't have to be chilled, but chilling gives them a better texture and makes them hold together better. Prep time does not include chilling time.
