These weren't bad, but they weren't quite worth the effort either. The recipe as in the book is in normal print, while my notes are in italics.

2 pounds ground lean beef
1 green bell pepper, cored, seeded, and minced These need to be cut as small as you can manage
1/2 cup chopped scallions (green onions) Again, chop these as small as possible
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon paprika
red pepper flakes to taste
salt to taste
6 hamburger buns, toasted If I make these again I'll do 8 buns
sliced tomatoes I skipped these
sour cream Skipped this too

Combine the beef, green pepper, scallions, and garlic in a mixing bowl. Add the cumin, oregano, thyme, paprika, and red pepper flakes and salt to taste, and mix until blended. Shape the meat into 6 patties. I'd do 8 instead. 6 patties makes for larger burgers than I like.

Broil, fry, or grill the meat to desired doneness. Place the hamburgers on toasted buns and top with sliced tomatoes and sour cream. I didn't do the recommened toppings. Instead we did ordinary burger toppings and onion jam.
