Southwestern Beef & Bean Burger Wraps

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.

Southwestern Beef & Bean Burger Wraps
Nutritionist Tested & Approved

Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients
  • 12 ounces 93%-lean ground beef

  • 1 cup refried beans

  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

  • 1 tablespoon chopped pickled jalapenos

  • 1 avocado, peeled and pitted

  • 1/2 cup prepared salsa

  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 4 whole-wheat tortillas, warmed (see Tip)

  • 2 cups shredded romaine lettuce

  • 1/2 cup shredded pepper Jack cheese

  • 1 lime, cut into 4 wedges

Directions
  1. Position oven rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler. Coat a broiler pan with cooking spray.

  2. Gently combine ground beef, beans, cilantro and jalapenos in a medium bowl (do not overmix). Shape into four 5-by-2-inch oblong patties and place on the prepared pan.

  3. Broil the patties until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center reads 165°F, 12 to 14 minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, mash together avocado, salsa and garlic powder in a small bowl.

  5. Place tortillas on a clean work surface. Spread each with the guacamole, then sprinkle with lettuce and cheese. Top each with a burger and roll into a wrap. Serve immediately, with lime wedges.

Tip: To warm tortillas: Wrap in foil; bake at 300°F until steaming, about 5 minutes. Or wrap in barely damp paper towels and microwave on High for 30 to 45 seconds.

I would like everyone to know, if you warm any kind of bread in the microwave
put it on defrost never hard or rubbery.
