This mom loves to cook

Hello! I'm Deirdre and I'm a stay at home mom to two boys. Cooking for a 6 and 4 year old- day in and day out can be the best job in the world, also the most frustrating. Trying to create not only kid friendly but husband and mom friendly meals is a challenge that I've readily accepted! My Foodie Mom blog is a record of the different recipes that I've tried in the kitchen, pictures of my ventures, and cool tricks I've picked up along the way. Cheers!

Tex-Mex Bean Burger

This is really a easy and flavorful vegetarian burger. Just don't add the bacon at the end. It was actually so yummy that if you didn't put the raw egg in it to bind it up, it would be a really great bean dip.


  • 1 (15 ounce) can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup corn
  • 1/3 cup fresh tomato, diced
  • 1/4 cup red onion, diced
  • 1 teaspoon jalapeno pepper, seeds and ribs removed, minced
  • 1 heaping tablespoon fresh cilantro or parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt and a few cracks black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon chile powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Mexican oregano, crushed between fingers
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/3 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • wheat buns
  • mild cheddar slices
  • sliced avocados
  • crispy bacon

Coarsely mash up the beans in a bowl, add the rest of the ingredients in and combine with a fork. Refrigerate for 20 minutes.

Heat a skillet over medium heat and grease lightly. Form mixture into patties and cook 5-6 minutes on each side until crispy on the outside.

Melt cheese over top and prepare burger the way that you would like.

This was really easy to make, and the kind of ingredients  that you could always have on hand and make at any time :) enjoy!
