Southwestern Beef & Bean Burger Wraps

Kids and adults alike will love these quick, zippy burgers. The beans make the burgers a little fragile, so be careful when taking them off the broiler pan. Make it a meal: Serve a green salad and frozen mango slices for dessert.

Total Time 25 min.

Ingredients

  • 12 ounces 93%-lean ground beef
  • 1 cup refried beans
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon chopped pickled jalapenos
  • 1 avocado, peeled and pitted
  • 1/2 cup prepared salsa
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 4 whole-wheat tortillas, warmed (see Tip)
  • 2 cups shredded romaine lettuce
  • 1/2 cup shredded pepper Jack cheese
  • 1 lime, cut into 4 wedges

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Position oven rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler. Coat a broiler pan with cooking spray.

Step 2

Gently combine ground beef, beans, cilantro and jalapenos in a medium bowl (do not overmix). Shape into four 5-by-2-inch oblong patties and place on the prepared pan.

Step 3

Broil the patties until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center reads 165°F, 12 to 14 minutes.

Step 4

Meanwhile, mash together avocado, salsa and garlic powder in a small bowl.

Step 5

Place tortillas on a clean work surface. Spread each with the guacamole, then sprinkle with lettuce and cheese. Top each with a burger and roll into a wrap. Serve immediately, with lime wedges.
