Triple Bean Southwestern Burger, my 100th post and a Giveaway


Yay! I reached my 100th post. And for this post I deliberated between sweet and savory. My friends would guess sweet but I wanted some big, heaping and oh so craveable. And voila here is my triple bean burger. Its made with beans and spices and layered with the usual suspects, lettuce  and tomato but adding a new dimension is sauteed onions and peppers with a chipotle mayo. The result is a spicy burger with melt-in-the-mouth patty, spice from the mayo and onions saute and crunch from lettuce/tomatoes making it a cannot-put-down burger. The portion below makes 7-8 burgers.

Ingredients:

For the burgers:

1 can red kidney beans
1 can cannelini beans
1 can black beans
2 tablespoons oil
1 medium onion chopped fine
1 green bellpepper chopped fine
1/2 cup jalapenos (pickled) chopped fine
3 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
Salt
Oil to shallow fry

Condiments:

1 medium onion, quartered and sliced
1 orange (or red) bell pepper julienned
1/4 cup pickled jalapenos chopped fine
1 tablespoon oil
1/2 cup mayo
1 tablespoon chipotle chili juice or chili sauce
1 ball (1 1/2 inch diameter) Queso oahaxa cheese
Lettuce
2 tomatoes sliced (as thick or thin as you want)
Salt
7-8 burger buns

Heat oil in a non stick pan and add the onions, garlic and peppers. Saute till translucent, about 2 minutes. Add the jalapenos. Rinse the beans properly and drain well. Add to the onions mixture and mix. Mash with a potato masher till all the beans are mashed. Don't over mash else the mix will become sticky and mushy. A few half-mashed beans are fine. Add chili powder, seasoning and salt and mix well. Taste and adjust seasonings. Keep aside to cool. Make patties with the bean mixture and shallow fry them in oil till crispy on each side. I made the bean patties using a round mold as it is easy to pack down the mixture in it. Use a non stick frying pan / griddle. 

In another pan, heat the oil and the onions, peppers and jalapenos. Saute till translucent and add salt. Keep aside.

Mix the mayonnaise with the chili and keep aside. Slice the cheese and keep aside.

Take the base of a burger bun and apply the chili mayo on it. Spread some lettuce on it and place the bean patty on that. Top with cheese slice and put a large spoonful of onion-pepper-jalapeno saute on top. The heat from the burger and saute will slowly melt the cheese. top with tomato slices and cover with the top bun. Take a huge bite and savor the flavor. A side of fries and soda makes it perfect.
