I am a big fan of your show. My kids love south western and Mexican food. Your recipes are amazing and big a hit in our home here in Toronto
My pleasure David! So glad to hear you guys enjoy the show and my recipes, thank you 🙂
So good! Fresh and delicious!
Glad you liked it Jake 😉
As part of my 4C (COVID-COPING-CARING-COOKING) strategy, I try new recipes. This burger is awesome….
I discovered one tip that I used. When preparing the patties, I sprayed olive-oil on my hands instead of warm water. Adds an extra taste to the burger. Otherwise, I followed your recipe to the “T”.
BTW: I have also made your Triple – lime cake. Indeed, it does not last a full day in this house. Kudos and Blessings to you.
Thanks so much Dave, I also saw your comment in the other recipe, thanks again for the hint! So glad you liked the pound cake as well 😉
I was wondering if you have ever used non-fat greek yogurt in place of mayo?
Never Cheri, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work. The consistency would be more like a Greek Tzatziki or a Persian Maast-o Khiar, but equally delicious. Enjoy!
I noticed the habanero came from a jar with liquid. Do you pickle the habanero in something, or just keep them in water until ready for use?
For this recipe I used store bought pickled habaneros Andrew, but you can pickle your own as well and they last for a long time!
Can this be made with a less hotter pepper like a poblano or jalapeno ?
Most excellent!! Thank you.
Thank YOU J.!
