Ingredients

12 ounces 93%-lean ground beef
1 cup refried beans
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon chopped pickled jalapenos
1 avocado, peeled and pitted
1/2 cup prepared salsa
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
4 whole-wheat tortillas, warmed (see Tip)
2 cups shredded romaine lettuce
1/2 cup shredded pepper Jack cheese
1 lime, cut into 4 wedges


Position oven rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler. Coat a broiler pan with cooking spray.



Gently combine ground beef, beans, cilantro and jalapenos in a medium bowl (do not overmix). Shape into four 5-by-2-inch oblong patties and place on the prepared pan.



Broil the patties until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center reads 165°F, 12 to 14 minutes.





4. Meanwhile, mash together avocado, salsa and garlic powder in a small bowl.





5. Place tortillas on a clean work surface. Spread each with the guacamole, then sprinkle with lettuce and cheese. Top each with a burger and roll into a wrap. Serve immediately, with lime wedges.

Notes

From Eating Well Magazine January/February 2007

Kids and adults alike will love these quick, zippy burgers. The beans make the burgers a little fragile, so be careful when taking them off the broiler pan. Make it a meal: Toss a green salad with Cilantro-Lime Vinaigrette and serve frozen mango slices for dessert.
