Excellent recipe! I used to make these but lost the recipe ... good, because these are much tastier! I also added lots of freshly ground cumin. Dave had 3rd helpings! Very successful - thank you!

These are very good! I used my cookie scoop to form small patties. I got 20+. Next time I will use 1/4 cup flour. The patties were just a little too stiff and doughy. I also added a lot more cumin and about 1 tsp of chili powder to suit our taste. Thank you!
