Big Chili Burger

Makes 4 servings


  • 8 oz. extra lean ground sirloin
  • 1/2 cup canned fat-free refried beans
  • 2 Tbsp. minced onion
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 jalapeo pepper, seeded and minced
  • 2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. freshly ground black pepper


  1. In a bowl, lightly mix together meat and beans with a fork until well combined. Mix in onion, garlic, jalapeo, chili powder, salt and pepper. (Be careful not to over-mix or you will end up with a tightly-compacted mixture that tastes unpleasant; it should be light.) Gently form mixture into four 4-inch patties.
  2. Cook burgers on pre-heated grill or ridged grill pan, turning them once, until a meat thermometer inserted in their centers registers 160 degrees (about 8 to 10 minutes). Hot burgers crumble easily, so handle carefully, using a wide spatula.
  3. Serve immediately, preferably on toasted buns, topped with sliced tomato and onion plus some well-drained salsa.
