    Recipe for Health: Southwestern Burgers

    These tasty, low-fat burgers use extra-lean ground beef combined with mashed black beans to reduce fat content and make moist, flavorful patties. The jalapeño pepper, cumin, and cilantro add a kick.

    1 c. reduced-sodium black beans, rinsed

    ¼ c. minced red onion

    1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely chopped

    2 tsp. ground cumin

    ¾ lb. extra-lean ground beef

    ¼ c. tomato sauce

    1 egg white

    2 tbsp. fresh chopped cilantro

    In a small bowl, mash black beans with a fork. Add onion, jalapeño pepper, and cumin. Mix well. Place ground beef in a large bowl, followed by the bean mixture. Add sauce, egg white, and cilantro. Blend well with a fork. Form into four 3/4-inch patties.

    Broil or grill for five to six minutes per side until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees.
