Black Bean Chip & Dip Burgers Recipe

Black Bean Chip & Dip Burgers Recipe

I tried to create a healthy veggie burger that wasn't dry and crumbly or really boring. These fit the bill because even my grandkids prefer them over hamburgers. They taste like chips and dip in a burger! —KT Rehrig, Allentown, Pennsylvania
