Burgers are generally processed foods and is considered junk food. Certain foods can be converted to become healthy by drawing up nice recipes. You can still enjoy all the taste and fun associated with foods bought outside. This delicious Mexican style black bean burger falls into that category.
Mexican style black bean burger is loaded with proteins and good vegetables. You can also control the amount of cheese added to these burgers. Unprocessed cheese is also healthy when consumed in moderate amounts. It is rich in calcium and is good for your teeth.
No compromise on taste, this Mexican style black bean burger is made with whole wheat buns! Infact it adds to the taste and more fibre! Black beans can be replaced with red kidney beans, borlotti beans or cannellini beans or white beans.

Mexican cuisine is one of my favourite cuisines and I love every bit of the unique flavours. Try these Mexican dishes from FOI, chilli non carne, jalapeno cornbread, spinach cheese muffins, spinach corn quesadillas and mixed veg enchiladas. A dollop of creamy guacamole is also nice served with these black bean burgers.
Enjoy these Mexican style black bean burgers!
