I found this recipe online when I first stopped eating meat and decided to try them,I was not used to eating vegetarian burgers but loved beef burgers.They were delicious! I've made a few changes,the original recipe called for 2 jalapeños,I thought that was too hot,so I use 1.The recipe also called for 2 t. of chile powder,I don't like that flavor so I omitted it.Also the recipe called for 2 eggs,I thought the mix was too soft,so I use 1,sometimes I add about 1/4 c more breadcrumbs just to form the patties. I make a burger using whole wheat buns,lettuce,tomatoes,red onion and dill pickles.
