Ingredients (Serves 6)
Time: Under 30 Minutes

  • 1/2 cup refried black beans

  • 1/4 cup canned jalapenos, diced

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  • 1 teaspoon cajun seasoning (recommend Old Bay)

  • 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar

  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

  • 2 lbs 85% lean ground beef chuck

  • 6 burger buns, split and toasted

  • Grilling Instructions

    1. Preheat the grill as follows:

    Direct heat, medium-high
    (425 - 450 degrees F)

    Direct heat, light ash, grate should be on lowest setting

    Direct heat, light ash, 3 - 4 inches deep, grate should be 2 inches above the fire

    2. Meanwhile in a large bowl, mix together all of the ingredients except the hamburger meat and buns. Mix in the hamburger meat. With a light touch, form into 6 patties no more than 1 inch thick.

    3. Lightly cut criss-cross marks into one side of your hamburger patties. Refrigerate them until the grill is ready.

    4. Clean and lightly oil grill grate. Grill bean burger patties, covered, 8 minutes total, flipping once halfway through.

    5. Remove your burgers from the grill once they are at your desired level of doneness.

    6. Allow them to rest a few minutes before serving to let the juices settle.

    7. These spicy homemade black bean burger patties taste great topped with spinach, sweet onions, and Monterey Jack cheese.

    For a gourmet burger presentation:
    Serve with the recommended toppings displayed atop a corn cake instead of a bun, along with a side of our grilled zucchini infused with fresh Mexican flavors of cumin, cilantro, garlic, and lime.
