    Sandylee's Note:

    These tasty, low fat burgers use extra-lean ground beef combined with mashed black beans to reduce fat content and make moist, flavorful patties. The jalapeno pepper, cumin and cilantro add a nice little kick. Use a hotter chile pepper if you prefer, or omit it altogether if you want a more subtle flavor. Serve burgers on a whole grain or sourdough bun with plenty of low fat condiments. Fresh salsa and low fat sour cream work perfectly. NOTE: Being recently diagnosed with Diabetes..I have some lifestyle changes to make...especially in my diet. Posting this here to be available for me to try soon.

      I followed the recipe exactly. Unless the store measured the meat wrong, everything should have went fine. However, the texture was horrible. In order to turn them without them falling apart, you had to wait until they turned black. Obviously that is not going to look very good. They weren't burnt though. No one ate them. My husband even gagged. We love black beans and we love ground beef... usually.
