Black Bean Nacho Burgers Recipe and Cookbook Review! Ten Dollar Dinners by Melissa d'Arabian
I just love when my local library posts their new books online. Cookbooks always catch my eye and before I know it, I have tons of them on request! I've always been a fan of Melissa d'Arabian and was super excited to discover her new cookbook, Ten Dollar Dinners in the new release section.
This cookbook has so many great recipes, I will be purchasing a copy of my own. I decided to try out the Black Bean Nacho burgers because I've always wanted to make them and I loved flavor combo in this recipe. The recipe below has the exact ingredients as listed in her cookbook, but I will add 1/2 teaspoon cumin the next time I make them for some more Mexican flavor. This cookbook is well worth buying and I hope you discover some of the other great recipes she has listed in it! Enjoy!!
Black Bean Nacho Burgers (print recipe)
What you need:
2 cups cooked black beans (I used canned, rinsed and drained)
1 cup finely crushed tortilla chips
1/2 cup salsa, plus extra for serving
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 green onions, thinly sliced
salt and pepper as desired
4 hamburger buns
3 tablespoons olive oil
sour cream for serving
Use a potato masher to smash the beans in a large bowl, until most of the beans are mashed, with a few semi whole beans left. Stir in the tortilla chips, salsa, cheese, egg, green onion, salt and pepper. Set the mixture aside for 10 minutes to allow chips to absorb some of the liquid. Shape into 4 patties.
Place patties on a plate, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or overnight.
Heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a large non stick skillet over medium heat. Set the burgers in the pan and cook until golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Flip the burgers and add remaining 1 tablespoon of oil. Cook until other side is golden, about 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and serve on a bun topped with salsa and sour cream!
