  • If you do not have yellow pepper, you can make the hamburgers with red pepper.
  • In case you do not have rice flour, you can also use whole wheat flour.
  • If you want to freeze the burgers, you can do it before cooking, keeping them in the freezer wrapped individually so they do not deform or stick together.
