"These are sooooo good! A burger kicked up a notch - just how I like my food. These have a wonderful smokey flavor. THE KETCHUP MAKES THE BURGER - it is so tangy and delicious! I tripled the recipe and took it to a potluck at work...they were the first thing to disappear. This recipe came from a Rachel Ray show, and I tweeked it a bit."

"Awesome, my husband loved these and I enjoyed making them. Followed the recipe except for using 2lbs of lean grassfed beef. I made my own grill seasoning, following recipe http://www.food.com/recipe/grill-seasoning-184558."
"Made these for DS to take to a Cinco de Mayo party. The burger is excellent. I doubled everything, even the "catsup" and I ended up with way too much of that. DS dislikes "chunky stuff" so we pureed the catsup. The only thing I'm thinking I would change is to drain the tomatoes - it separated and didn't look too great. We added cheese to half of them but did not offer bacon or onions."
"Very good. I made 8 regular size burgers. The catsup was surprisingly good!!! Nice mild heat to the burgers."
"DH gave 5 thumbs up before I had a chance to take a bite! From my small can of chipotle peppers in adobo, I have enough chipotle chiles for 2 more recipes, so I will make more mini burgers and freeze them until the adult children come for a barbecue. I used diced Fire-Roasted Tomatoes instead of crushed, but DH takes to salsa on his burger rather than catsup, so this escaped a psychological barrier. The burgers are spicier than we usually attempt, but the sweet salsa/catsup helps to offset the intensity. DH says this is worth taking a Zantac. For DH, I folded each slice of cheese into 2 triangles to straddle the burger; this worked well. For me, back on WW, one mini burger was all I needed. Thanks for posting this recipe, SCOOBYBOO! Made for Top Favorites of 2008 Tag, on the recommendation of loof."
"The fire roasted garlic catsup is the cat's meow in this recipe. Makes you never want to have regular catsup again! I used 2 pounds of ground sirloin (I think that was what was originally used on Rachel's show). I just made regular size burgers as we were having them as a meal instead of an appetizer which I normally make the mini-size ones for. This is an absolutely must try recipe! Thank you for posting!"
"Can I please have more stars for this recipe?!?! Wow this was just great! The chipotle and the seasoning were just terrific and you are so right about the homemade fire-roasted catsup - it is fantastic, and great on the fries too! I served with cheddar and bacon as suggested, and those spicy burgers topped with that sauce were awesome - thanks for sharing this great recipe!"
"These were awesome!!! I made the fire roasted catsup, and it made the burgers...I also served a horseradish mayo with them, and that was equally as good...GREAT RECIPE!!!!!"
