"I serve this without the roll for a great low-carb meal. If you decide to use a roll, drain the Pico de Gallo before placing on top of the burger to prevent the bun from getting wet. Fresh cilantro is a must for the Pico de Gallo. While you may choose to use a little cooking spray, it is not necessary as the burgers, at first a little sticky, will firm up as they cook." — Peach822

Delicious, and loved the pico de gallo! They were a little mushy, so in order to cook them on an outdoor grill I had to lay down tinfoil and spray with some Pam... but it totally worked. My boyfriend is a ketchup fan and was hesitant to eat a burger without it, but LOVED them and asked that I suggest others put Sour Cream on them as well as it makes it perfect! Thanks for the awesome recipe.
Pretty bland - we like the Spicy Turkey Burgers much better.
I have to echo most of the other reviews. The burgers themselves were a bit bland and could use something.. perhaps garlic salt or some spicy ketchup? The pico de gallo sauce was fantastic and really made this recipe stand out. In fact next time I will make a little more of the pico de gallo because I couldn't stop eating it. Served with mexican rice and chips makes for a nice mexican style meal. Thanks!
My husband and I loved this recipe! I reduced the amount of cilantro to 1/4 cup (we are not big fans) and it was excellent. Very healthy, too. I don't think the fat content in the nutrition info box is correct. My calculations were much lower, but we ate these without the bun.
The foil on the grill is a must for these burgers, they are sticky. They were great, I will be making these again and again.
The whole family loved this. I didn't have coriander, but they still tasted great. Next time, I'll buy some coriander to go with it. We topped them with cheese, sour cream and salsa.
This should be wonderful. I have made almost the exact same recipe for ten years and it turns out perfect, moist and juicy every time. I add a little olive oil to the meat mixture and nothing sticks. The Pico de Gallo is similar to the salsa I use and should be very tasty. I'll make this recipe for supper today. Thanks!
My picnic(ers) loved these! very falvorful but a little tough to grill on a slow cooking charcoal grill. The burgers were so juicy and big.
