  1. This was a yummy alternative to a plain hamburger, especially since I don't eat bread. I was a little afraid of the "burger stuffing" process, but it really wasn't that hard, and was definitely worth it. I used shredded cheddar cheese and canned jalapenos. The jalapenos made it a little hotter than the ordinary canned chiles, but my husband still ate it, and said it "was't unbearable." Believe me, that is an approval from him ;)
  2. This is a really good recipe, especially for us venison users. I used 1 lb. of venison and the same amount of spices as written, then added an egg to hold the burgers together (made 4 burgers). Thanks, Jellyqueen!
  3. Yum! I used only 3/4 lb of lean ground beef but the full spice amounts. I used all garlic salt. I only made 4 patties to make 2 larger burgers. I stuffed them with canned whole mild green chilies and shredded cheddar. I broiled them about 8-9 minutes per side. We ate them without any buns and recipe#185647. Very, very good! Thanks for a keeper recipe Jellyqueen! Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders game.
