Recipe Ingredients for Chili Burgers

1 tsp canola oil
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
2 tsp ground cumin
1 cup cooked black beans
12 oz lean ground beef
2 tbs tomato paste
2 tbs chopped fresh cilantro
1 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground pepper

Recipe Directions for Chili Burgers

  1. Heat oil in a small nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion and saute until light golden, about 3 minutes. Add garlic, jalapeno, and cumin; saute until fragrant, about 2 minutes longer. (If the mixture becomes too dry, add 1 tablespoon water.) Transfer the mixture to a medium bowl.

  2. Prepare a grill or preheat the broiler. Add beans to the onion mixture and mash coarsley with a potato masher. Add beef, tomato paste, cilantro, thyme, salt and pepper; mix thoroughly but lightly. Shape the mixture into four 3/4-inch-thick patties. (Tip: When forming burger patties, make them thinner at the center to prevent them from steaming as they cook.)

  3. Grill or broil the patties on a lightly oiled rack until browned and cooked through, about 5 minutes per side. Place on rolls and garnish with salsa and lettuce.
