About this recipe

This is my go-to burger recipe when I want something filling, easy to make, and packed with nutrients that make it worth having fries on the side.

These veggie burgers are full of typical Southwest flavors, super healthy, and easy to make. The best thing is that you can make them with canned beans and pre-cooked rice if you are in a hurry.

Serve your burgers with condiments such as mayo, mustard, ketchup, and lettuce.

How to make the hamburgers?

To make it, simply put all the ingredients in the bowl and crush them with the back of a spoon. That’s all you need to do!

Form the burger patties and place them on a baking sheet. Once they start to brown, remove them from the oven, add a slice of yellow cheese on top of each patty, and put them back in the oven to melt the cheese.
