<p>Savor the bold and fiery delight of our spicy veggie burgers, meticulously crafted with a hearty blend of black beans, vibrant red bell pepper, savory onion, textured breadcrumbs, crunchy walnuts, and a tantalizing infusion of McCormick®&nbsp; Grill Mates® Chipotle &amp; Roasted Garlic Seasoning. These delectable patties, expertly pan-fried to perfection, are crowned with the melty richness of Sargento® Pepper Jack Cheese and nestled within a whole wheat bun. The ensemble reaches new heights with the crisp freshness of lettuce, succulent tomato slices, zesty red onion, creamy avocado, and a finishing touch of tangy brilliance from our French’s® Dijon Mustard with chardonnay and lime mayo.</p>

  1. For Veggie Burgers: Set aside 1 cup of black beans. Combine remaining black beans(about 1 ½ cups) and next five ingredients in a food processor. Cover and process until smooth. Transfer mixture to a bowl. Add reserved cup of black beans and stir until well blended. Form into four equal patties(about 6 oz. each). Set aside.
  2. For Mustard Lime Mayo: In a small bowl, combine mayo, Dijon mustard and lime zest. Stir until well blended. Set aside.
  3. Prepare buns by evenly spreading mustard lime mayo on the cut side of each bun top. Place one piece of lettuce and 2 tomato slices on the bun bottoms. Set aside.
  4. Pre-heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add avocado oil. Place 2 veggie burgers in the skillet. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown and crisp on the bottom. Gently flip burgers. Cook for 1-2 minutes. Add 2 slices of cheese to each burger. Cook an additional minute or until cheese begins to melt. Transfer to a plate. Keep warm while cooking remaining burgers.
  5. Transfer veggie burgers to bun bottoms over lettuce and tomato. Top with red onion rings, avocado slices and bun tops. Serve
