Mexican burger

Got a hankering for a Mexican meal, or burgers? I often get cravings for both of these! So one day I decided to make something that hits both spots! These Mexican burger patties are the best of both worlds!

They’re a perfect option for meat-free Monday, are fabulous take-to-work lunch options, in a lettuce burger or crumbled through a salad or use them in fajitas or tacos. My favourite serving is on a lettuce burger with a generous dollop of guacamole!

A burger patty mashed through a big salad with avocado.

  1. Place half of the cooked bean mixture into a bowl with the EVOO, lemon juice, spice mix and chia seeds.
  2. Using a soup stick/immersion blender, blend the mixture together to form a smooth paste – it’s not important to be completely smooth, just mostly mixed together.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients and mix together with a spoon or your hands.
  4. Form into burger patties and place in fridge for 15 minutes to firm up.
  5. Heat a fry pan to medium heat, add a little EVOO and grill the burger patties, flipping and cooking on both sides.
  6. Serve as you like. My favourite serving is on a lettuce burger with a generous dollop of guacamole (see the main picture)!
