If your kids watch Nickelodeon, they may be familiar with the "Spaghetti Tacos" on iCarly. This is a twist on that same concept! Rather than putting those beans and veggies in a taco shell, why not try a bun? Burrito burgers are a funny way to switch things up for children that like Mexican food. Call it by whichever Mexican dish they like best - "Nacho Burger' or "Taco Burger' could also work!
- 1¾ lb Canned Black beans
- 3 Tablespoons Reduced-fat mayonnaise
- ⅓ cup Panko breadcrumbs
- 2 teaspoons Ground cumin
- 2 Tablespoons Fresh oregano
- ½ Jalapeño pepper
- ¼ cup Fresh cilantro
- 3 Tablespoons Canola oil
- 4 Whole-wheat hamburger buns
- 1 Large tomato
- 4 Lettuce leaves

Chop oregano, jalapeño pepper, and cilantro. Slice tomatoes. Prepare lettuce.
Process half of the beans in a food processor with mayonnaise, bread crumbs, cumin, oregano, and jalapeño until a coarse purée forms.
Transfer to a bowl and stir in cilantro and remaining can of beans. Form mixture into 4 patties.
Heat oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over medium-high heat until it shimmers.
Cook burgers until outsides are crisp and lightly browned, turning once (about 5 minutes total).
