border burger

Since my husband and I both love black beans, I decided to combine them with pork to create these wonderful burgers. They remind me of being in a restaurant where creative chefs invent receipes and don't follow the rules. These are so good and requested often and potlucks.


1 lb ground pork
1 15 1/2 oz black beans drained
1 avocado sliced thin
1 red onion sliced thin
1 8 oz sour cream
1 tsp ground black pepper
1 16 oz jar salsa
1 large tomato sliced into 6 slices
6 slices pepper jack cheese
6 circular onion rolls


Mash black beans with a fork until coarsely ground. Mix beans and pork together and form into 6 patties. Grill burgers on outdoor gas grill for 25 minutes. Grill open faced the rolls for 3 minutes.Place cheese on top of burgers and heat for 2 minutes or until cheese is melted. Place the burgers on the buns and top onion, avocado, sour cream, tomato, and salsa on top of the burgers.


These are wonderful served with on any day when you are craving something from south of the border. Very easy and quick to make.
