Tried this on the weekend and it was SO amazing! I'm already planning the next time I can make it!. I added a bit of bbq sauce to the patties for some added flavour and they turned out great. The salsa is also delicious and I'm using the leftover salsa as a dip for my celery snacks during the week. Yum yum!
