Beef & Bean Burgers – $5 Dinner Challenge

A few notes about this lovely meal.

And now I leave you with the burger recipe.  Including the egg that I did not use, but the recipe needs.

Taco Burgers

Yield – 6 servings

Preparation Time – 10 minutes

Cooking Time – 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1/2 yellow onion ($.15)
  • 2 garlic cloves ($.10)
  • 1.4 lb ground beef ($2.07)
  • 2 cups cooked pinto beans, mashed ($.40) Substitute 15 ounce can, drained
  • 2 Tbsp homemade taco seasoning ($.10)
  • 1 egg ($.10)
  • Few spoonfuls homemade or store bought salsa ($.25)
  • 12 slices bread, or 6 buns ($.60)
  • Lettuce from garden
  • Cilantro from garden
  • Cherry tomatoes, halved ($.75)
  • Cilantro Lime Dressing ($.25)

Directions

  • Cut an onion in half and pull off 2 garlic cloves.

  • Peel back the flaky onion layer. I like to use the “root” end to hold onto while grating the onion.

  • Place the ground beef into a large mixing bowl. Add the crushed garlic and grate the onion.

  • Add the mashed pinto beans and taco seasoning mix. (Add the egg here.) Combine and form into 6 patties.

  • Grill the patties, until cooked through. Serve on buns with a spoonful or two of salsa on top.
  • Prepare dressing and salad.
  • Serve Taco Burgers, topped with salsa, with Garden Salad and Cilantro Lime Dressing.
