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: Toss a green salad with Cilantro-Lime Vinaigrette and serve frozen mango slices for dessert.

Southwest Beef and Bean Burger Wraps

Servings: 4

Total cost per serving: $2.61


  • 1 dash cooking spray
  • 12 ounces beef, lean ground
  • 1 cup beans, refried, fat-free
  • ½ cup cilantro, fresh
  • 1 tablespoon pepper, jalapenos, pickled
  • 1 medium avocado
  • ½ cup salsa
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 4 small tortillas, flour, whole-wheat
  • 2 cups lettuce, romaine

  1. Position oven rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler. Coat a broiler pan with cooking spray.
  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.
  3. Broil the patties until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center reads 165°F, 12 to 14 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, mash together avocado, salsa and garlic powder in a small bowl.
  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.
