Submitted by FPP2000
Recipe Description Use canned black beans or left-overs form Southwest Black Beans and Rice recipe to stretch your ground beef, and add nutrition to your burgers. These go nicely with or without a bun, and are best cooked on a flat-top or griddle. If you're using a grill, be sure it is well-oiled.

Amt. Measure Ingredient
cupblack beans, rinsed and drained
poundBeef, ground, 80% lean meat / 20% fat, raw
teaspoonschili powder
teaspoonsblack pepper
Sequence Step
1Place black beans in a large bowl and using a potato masher, mash them until there are just a few whole beans left.
2Add ground beef and seasonings.
3Using clean hands, mix together until the beans, beef, and seasonings are well blended- as if you were making meat loaf.
4Divide the mixture into 6 portions, and make a patty out of each one.
5Cook patties on a well-oiled griddle, or grill. Season with a little extra salt and pepper before you turn them.
6After you have turned the patties over and the 2nd side is mostly cooked, sprinkle each patty with grated Cheddar or Cojack cheese. Make a foil tent over the top of the griddle, to help the cheese melt. When cheese has melted, remove from heat and let the burgers set for a couple minutes before serving.
7Black Bean Burgers are great served in whole wheat/whole grain pitas, sandwich thins, or hamburger buns. Garnish with lettuce, red onion, tomato, and avocado or guacamole.
