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

"my vegan friends ate these burgers, but personally Ii found them a little too dry (i must have done something wrong) and didn't care for the taste...too commercial; would prefer something more traditional."

"I have been looking everywhere for a good Black Bean Burger recipe. These were so easy to make and even my husband, who is an avid meat-eater loved them. This recipe is definitely a keeper!"

"Wow-everyone loved these burgers. We added guacamole as an additional condiment. Even though I baked the patties they were still kind of crumbly. Next time I will use refried black beans, melt a slice of cheese on top of each pattie, and make the pattie size smaller (I made 6 burgers instead of 8--I think there is a reason the recipe states to make 8). This recipe will be added to our all-time favorites."

"So good!! We added Monterey Jack cheese on top. Next time I'll mash my beans better - they were a little crumbly and also I think I'll make 6 burgers just to make them a bit bigger. But overall great flavor & so easy to make!"

"These were packed with flavor. I did leave out the quinoa bc I had none on hand and used Doritos in place of the baked tortilla chips. I baked them in the oven so the patties held together better."
