  1. My mother made these for me and my son who is a VERY picky eater, and he LOVED them so much! I absolutely loved the salsa and could eat it every day. What a wonderful recipe! I am adding it to my monthly menu!
  2. Wow, this is good stuff! Thank you for posting it. I made this making only one change - no jalapeno. I made it for my daughter her very, very fussy 3-yr old, Connor. Well, Connor loved the burger! It is hard to get him to try new things, and he does NOT like vegies. But he just thought it was a regular hamburger, and ate it up. The look is very good, and the texture is almost like ground turkey. And the salsa! My daughter and I agree - we could eat it by itself! We will definitely make this again.


I am a mom to 2 boys, ages 11 and 6. My youngest is a cancer survivor, so we enjoy each day given to us! You never know what can happen in your life! I have been in the loan business for over 10 years and I love it. Unfortunately, this economy has put a wrench into my awesome career. After a couple layoffs, I decided I need to do something else for awhile. I am now selling advertising, and it's different! I am thankful to have a job, so can't complain much! I love to cook. I can spend a whole Sunday in the kitchen just cooking away. I love trying new recipes (my boyfriend hates it. Lol. He likes what he likes and would be fine never trying anything new.) I never bake. I think it's because I don't measure. I am a throw-in-the-ingredients until they taste good kind of girl. I LOVE this site(actually, I am addicted to it) and am enjoying finding new things to make everyday!
