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!
Southwestern Beef & Bean Burger Wraps
From EatingWell: January/February 2007
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.

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!
I made these using 99% fat-free turkey instead of beef. They were phenomenal. They were not difficult to make and tasted so very good! These will definitely become a staple in my house!
So fast and easy to make. These were ready very quickly. Easy for my 4 year old to eat. Doesn't fall apart on him like a burrito would.
OMG!!! I love it, so quick and easy. great creamy texture in the spread that compliments the burger and crispness in the lettuce.
