    I prepared this last night and it was really good! I opted to grill my burgers. Had to use regular American cheese because that's all I had. Go figure, no one followed the recipe but me. They thought it was weird. It was a bit spicy because of the type of salsa I used along with the chiles...but not to the point of crying about it. I enjoyed all the flavors of this burger. Thank you for the recipe!

    Really good burgers! I wanted to cook them on the grill because I needed to grill a chicken breast for another recipe, so I mixed the spices in with the meat. I grilled the onions as well. I had pepper jack cheese, but still used the green chilies and used a few jalapenos as well. Also toasted the buns on the grill. Waited until the last minute to add the cheese and the ketchup/salsa mix was a hit! I can't wait to try them inside.....after reading other reviews about the method I am now intrigued. Thanks for sharing! Made for Zaar Stars tag game.

    We all loved these burgers! The only modification I made was to use fresh jalapeno peppers from my garden, which we grilled along wih the burgers. Delicious! Thanks for sharing such a good recipe.

    Loved these burgers! The combination of the cumin and chili powder really gave the burgers a great taste and the combo of the ketsup and salsa was wonderful as well. We used pepper-jack cheese so I did not use the green chilies; however, I love them and will use them next time because believe me, there will be a next time.
