Mexican Taco Black Bean Burger

Taco Black Bean Burger recipe

Can you guys believe it’s August already?  Even though Fall is my favorite Season and I’m ready for the months to leap ahead and the leaves to change, there is still something romantic about the Summertime.  There’s the gathering of friends in a park for a picnic, there’s barbecues on a rooftop, there’s farmers market stands bursting with the most tasty plums and peaches and there’s full force ahead garden season happening on the roof.   

How can’t I love and respect Summer when I can run up to the roof and grab all these beauties from their container?  Hello beautiful tomato!

And how can’t I really love Summer when all those vegetables can come together and create this burger masterpiece?

Because I’m craving a picnic style dinner to celebrate August I wanted to make a burger but put my own garden loving taco twist on it.  Think of this as half burger, half taco.  Think of it as 100% delicious.  Who wants to spend a lot of time in the kitchen during the Summer? Not me.  I love these burgers because they are quick.  This is a 5 minute meal.  By the time you decide it’s going to be a burger party in just a few minutes later you’ll have all the supplies ready to go and ready to sit down and get your burger on.

And it’s going to be one heck of a tasty burger.  To start you’ll have a Spicy Black Bean burger as a basis that is loaded with beans, tomatoes and corn.  Then we’re going to use refried beans as the sauce that holds this burger together.   Throw on some lettuce, tomatoes, a little Mexican blend cheese and a bunch of jalapenos (or candied jalapenos!) and you have a bring the house down burger.   I’m serious guys.  This is a life changing burger.  It won my heart!
