You can adjust the spices in these mouth-watering Mexican burgers to suit the family. Make them as hot or mild as you like by simply adding or omitting the optional chilli flakes and Tabasco sauce. Either way when the avocadoes are in season this recipe will become a firm favourite.

If you don’t have 8 people to serve, use fresh mince when making the patties and freeze premade patties for another super speedy Burger Thursday.

Cooking the Patties

To Assemble

1

Drain, rinse and roughly mash the black beans.

2

Using a food processor, process the bread slices into crumbs. Follow this with processing quartered onion so it’s finely chopped.

3

Place mince, black beans, finely chopped onion, breadcrumbs, egg, garlic, chilli flakes, cumin, oregano salt and pepper into a large mixing bowl. Using clean hands mix all the ingredients until spices and onions are mixed through well.

4

Shape into 8 patties slightly larger than your brioche burger buns. Make a small thumb print indent in the middle of each patty, put on a baking paper-lined tray and if you have the time refrigerate for at least a half hour or until ready to cook.
