Beef and Black Bean Burgers

Beef and Black Bean Burgers

Canned black beans + lean ground beef = one delicious lower-fat burger.

Veggie burgers often are too tender for the grill. Here’s a happy compromise: Add a can of black beans to lean ground beef for a burger that’s lower in fat and calories. Garnish the burgers with your favorite chunky-style salsa.
