Corn and Two-Bean Burgers With Chipotle Ketchup

Since many of you have so wonderfully shared your old standby dinner recipes with me (we had one last night!), I thought I would share some of mine with you.  So, over the next few weeks I’ll be posting a few of my little family’s dinnertime favorites.

The first recipe I’d like to share is from Cooking Light. I make it A LOT.  A lot, a lot.  Why you ask?

  1. It’s super easy and I usually have all the ingredients in the house.
  2. It’s healthy.
  3. All three members of my little family happily gobble it up.
  4. Did I mention it’s EASY??

So, here you go…Enjoy!

Corn And Two-Bean Burgers With Chipotle Ketchup

Photo From Cooking Light



2 tablespoons olive oil

1 (15-ounce) can kidney beans, rinsed and drained

1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained

1/3 cup dry breadcrumbs (I use more.  I keep adding until the mixture isn’t so sticky).

1/4 cup canned whole-kernel yellow corn, drained

1/4 cup prechopped onion

1 large egg

Ketchup: (Annabelle doesn’t eat the Ketchup because it’s a little spicy, but Mike and I are big fans).

1/3 cup ketchup

1 teaspoon honey

1 teaspoon lime juice

1/2 teaspoon chipotle chile powder

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin


To prepare burgers, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.  Combine kidney beans and black beans in a large bowl; partially mash with a fork. Add breadcrumbs, corn, onion, and egg; stir until well blended. Form bean mixture into 4 (1/2-inch-thick) patties.

Add patties to pan; cook 4 minutes on each side or until crisp and beginning to brown.

To prepare ketchup, combine ketchup, honey, lime juice, chile powder, and cumin, stirring with a whisk.

You can serve these on a bun or an english muffin.  Most of the time we forgo the bread and just eat it by itself, with a side of couscous and a vegetable.


P.S. Wednesday is Mike and my 4 year Anniversary, so next week I will be sharing a few lovey-dovey crafts.

    Those look so yummy! We’re trying to eat more meatless meals, so these look perfect. Thanks for sharing!

  4. I know they taste great since you’ve made them for me!

  5. I made these tonight and I am in LOVE! I had to improvise a little, since I thought I had the kidney beans in my cupboard when I went grocery shopping this week and I didn’t. I used chickpeas instead and they worked out perfectly. The ketchup is amazing. Thanks for sharing such a great recipe!
