Kids and adults alike will love these quick, zippy burgers. The beans make the burgers a little fragile, so be careful when taking them off the broiler pan. Make it a meal: serve a green salad and frozen mango slices for dessert. Source: EatingWell Magazine, January/February 2007

Ingredients

Directions

  • Position oven rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler. Coat a broiler pan with cooking spray.

    Advertisement
  • Gently combine ground beef, beans, cilantro and jalapenos in a medium bowl (do not overmix). Shape into four 5-by-2-inch oblong patties and place on the prepared pan.

  • Broil the patties until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center reads 165 degrees F, 12 to 14 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, mash together avocado, salsa and garlic powder in a small bowl.

  • Place tortillas on a clean work surface. Spread each with the guacamole, then sprinkle with lettuce and cheese. Top each with a burger and roll into a wrap. Serve immediately, with lime wedges.

Tips

Tip: To warm tortillas: Wrap in foil; bake at 300°F until steaming, about 5 minutes. Or wrap in barely damp paper towels and microwave on High for 30 to 45 seconds.

Delicious and Filling Made these tonight with a couple of small changes. I used 1 lb of ground sirloin 1 can of refried black beans and added bread crumbs. I also used queso cheese and topped it with some fresh tomato in addition to the other toppings. I will be making them again soon even my picky 4 yr old and 1 year old devoured these. Pros: easy to make Cons: falls apart Read More

Easy to make it and very tasty! I will definitely be making these again! I used the recommended ingredients. I will probably use black beans and fresh garlic like other reviewers suggested. The burgers did fall apart while cooking I will premake the burgers and refrigerate them before cooking. Overall it was a great meal! Pros: Convenient easy ingredients hearty Cons: burgers fell apart while cooking Read More

These were pretty good. I had to make a couple of changes based purely on tastes: I substituted fat free sour cream for the avacado and I used spinach tortillas instead of whole wheat ones. They still were great and even my kids enjoyed these! Read More

Panfrying rather than broiling may help keep the burger from falling apart; otherwise very flavorful I'd definitely make these again! Read More

One of my new favorite meals!! These are soooooo incredibly good!! Pretty easy to made and loved by my family. This gets made pretty close to once a week around here. I don't put in jalapenos because I don't like spicy and they are so good. Two thumbs up:-) Read More

This was a great recipe! We did not have tortillas so I made them on hamburger buns. I spread the guacamole on the bottom half of the bun and added a thin slice of pepper jack on top of the burger. Delicious! Read More

Very tasty however next time I will just mash the avocado and top the burger with the salsa separately. Mixing them together they loose a lot of taste and turn into a funky looking spread. Read More

Creamy - Yummy - Delicious! This was fantastic. I'm a fan of Eating Well and I like to regularly try out their recipes and this was yet another home run. The refried beans made the lean meat extra moist and the cilantro - lime - avocado mixture is a winning combination in my opinion. I served my wrap with salt & pepper baked Kettle chips. I will DEFINITELY be making this again - might even switch things up and try it with ground turkey or chicken! Pros: Easy quick satisfying Cons: Messy Read More

Absolutely Fabulous! This recipe was fabulous! I used black beans instead of the refried beans which I mashed lightly with a potato masher. I used 1 lb of grass-fed organic beef and 1 can of black beans drained. I also used 2 cloves of fresh garlic instead of the garlic powder. And instead of the pickled jalapenos I used fresh roasted green chilies. I pan-fried instead of broiling and served open faced topped with a slice of jalapeno jack cheese pico de gallo and sliced avocado...no bread which cuts down on the carbs! FABULOUS and a huge hit with my family! Pros: Easy delicious! Cons: None Read More
