Dancing a happy jig over these tingly tasty burgers. Absolutely love the sauce and regretted not making more to pass around for extra shmearing. Didn't add lettuce because we ran out. Instead, added some Monterey Jack cheese and onion to those who wanted it. Definitely, a Great tasting burger that I would recommend any day. Thanks so much, Teresa, for sharing! Made it for Billboard and FYC Tag games.

Tasty, peppy burger that I loved. The sauce is awesome. Right into my burger ookbook it goes. This burger will be made soon again. I added a bit of cheddar cheese. Served on a Jalapeno/cheese bun.
