1/4 Photos of Mexican Bean Burgers W/ Lime Yogurt & Salsa
I am trying to push full forced with my diet to finally reach my 100lbs lost target. So, I am collecting every low fat recipe that looks good to me and this is the latest one. I found it in the April 2009 of BBC good food magazine. The recipe says that the uncooked burgers can be frozen so they would be good to make ahead and have when I need something quick but also healthy.
