Killin’ It in the Kitchen:

This week we have a hearty bean burger recipe that will leave you full and satisfied whether or not you are a vegetarian! We made a fiesta night of it, and trust us, these burgers go great with some guacamole, pico de gallo and, of course, margaritas. This rec-ipe makes four to five burgers. We recommend doubling it and making a bulk batch since they freeze well and you can heat them up in a pan later when you need a quick fix!
