Beef ‘n Bean Burrito Burgers

These tasty burgers are great for using leftover rice!

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef sirloin
  • 1 can black beans (15 ounces), rinsed
  • 1/2 cup leftover white or brown rice, cold
  • 1 tablespoon grill seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon ancho chili powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin (about 1/2 palmful)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground coriander (about 1/2 palmful)
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 avocado
  • 1/2 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 jalapeño pepper or serrano chili pepper, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, grated or finely chopped
  • Grated peel and juice of 1 lime
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 4 crusty rolls, split
  • 4 leaves red leaf lettuce
  • 1 tomato, sliced

Preparation

In a large bowl, combine the beef, beans, rice, grill seasoning, chili powder, cumin and coriander. Form into four patties. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the patties and cook, turning once and lowering the heat slightly for the last few minutes, until browned, 12 minutes.

While the burgers cook, in a medium size bowl, mash together the avocado, onion, jalapeño pepper, garlic, lime peel and lime juice. Stir in the sour cream.

Layer each roll bottom with a lettuce leaf, a tomato slice, a beef patty, guacamole and a roll top.
