    I am a vegetarian; used Gardein burger but will use Light Line for more ounces; the flavor was great; I just sprinkled some Chiptole pepper on my food and not used the Tex mex mix. Sour cream instead of mayo. mixed all together with the argula and it was divine. Another recipe that will be in my quick fix dinner.

    This was delicious, didn't have any jalapenos at home but substituted with a spoon of home made salsa.

    This was a great recipe although my burgers fell apart (flipped them too quick). For lunch the next day I shredded the cheese and diced the avocado and mixed it with the reheated ground beef. It basically made a ground beef smash. I think it was better than the night before!!

    What is the best alternative for Mexican Cheese? Really, cannot find one.

    Ole look for fiery hot cheese at your deli cheese counter...any cheese with chili,s in it will do xx

    I have a question. what do you mean by 2 servings per person? is it like preparing as seen on the plate twice and eating one of the plate for dinner and one plate for next day lunch?

    Hi does anyone have an alternative to the tex mex seasoning? Can't find that or the Mexican cheese here

    We use taco seasoning instead of Tex-Mex seasoning, works great! And we just used pepper jack cheese slices instead of Mexican cheese slices.

    I had this for dinner this evening and thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks for this recipe, very simple and tasty. I had your Tex Mex seasoning already made up in the cupboard as it's one of my favourites, so the whole dish was quick to make and cook. The only extra I added was a good splash of tobasco over the avocado. Looking forward to lunch tomorrow.
    Oh and these burgers would be perfect for a barbecue!
