Bean Burgers with Spicy Guacamole

Your rating: None Average: 3.8 (224 votes)

These bean burgers will even please carnivores. The cornmeal coating gives a pleasant crunch and smoked paprika, cumin, cilantro and guacamole add Southwestern flavor.

"We made these last night and they were very tasty and they blew away the store-bought versions. The guac had plenty of flavor and the burgers stayed together when cooking. We used a large pan and only cooked three at a tie so there was...

Well, I'm not sure how to review this one. So far every recipe from this website has been 100% amazing! This one, probably amazing to those who seek SUPER healthy tasting meals, I prefer mine to be on the healthy side but not taste like it, hehe : ) I think the quinoa is probably the culprit of the super healthy tasting part, so who knows, maybe try it with rice??

They did turn out for me though, as far as the staying together part. I used canned blacked beans and didn't drain them, just poured them straight into the pan, i also used a tiny bit of the quinoa water when I was combining it all. But yeah, they stayed together perfectly fine in round little burgers!

Good luck, they are good, just not excellent, probably won't make again : (


Quite delicious! I found the mixture a bit dry and added some of the bean cooking liquid to moisten it slightly....probably no more than 1/3 cup. Will definitely make again. Although I haven't done it, I'm thinking that one could probably substitute brown rice or other cooked grain for the quinoa if you don't have it on hand.


I really feel sorry for the family of the person who doesn't want to take the time to prepare these and will buy the premade store bought (salt and soy filled processed crud) stuff. Healthy meals made from whole foods take a little time and my family is worth it.


Like other people, my burgers completely fell apart. I had to eat them with a spoon. I don't mind making things that are time consuming, but it is disappointing when they don't turn out. The taste was decent.


It really didn't take long to make these once the beans were cooked. For those who had trouble with the burgers falling apart, do not drain the beans! This is the key; you need more moisture in them. The mix was way too dry as I was mixing the beans, quinoa & cornmeal together, so I added a 1/4 cup of bean liquid to the mix & it was fine. Very tasty, great texture and healthy...what's not to love? :)
