Oh boy, you need this burger in your life. Warm earthy spiced black beans with melty cheese, guacamole and crunchy tortilla chips. I so totally planned this beauty to the minutest detail.
Ok. It was 5 p.m. and I arrived at the grocery store without a list or a plan. Its times like this I actually use food products.
Shh… Don’t tell anyone. OK, go ahead. Yell it out loud. Just don’t tell Michael Pollan. He’d be so disappointed in me.
Well he’d be disappointed in me if he knew who I was. Which he doesn’t. So I’m probably safe. Sometimes food products are yummy and mainly healthy.
I just wish I could eat this burger all over again. Why are there only three meals in a day?
Grilled Guacamole Black Bean Burgers
If you have time, feel free to make your own black bean burgers and guacamole. Or, you can spend 10 minutes prepping dinner and relax for the rest of the night with a good book like I did.
