“From Better Home and Gardens - Delicious! They are burger patties, but the full recipe from BH&G says to serve them on tostadas and they are marvelous that way! We made our own tostadas using corn tortillas and frying them in an inch of olive oil. Perfection!”

8 Patties

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl mash half the beans with a potato masher or pastry blender until well mashed. Add remaining beans, corn, corn chips, rice, onion, the 1/2 cup salsa, the chipotle peppers, cumin, and garlic.
  2. Shape mixture into eight 4-inch patties, about 3/4-inch thick. Place patties on a tray; cover and chill at least 1 hour before grilling.
  3. Brush both sides of patties with olive oil; place patties on a grill pan. For a charcoal grill, place grill pan on the grill rack directly over medium coals for 8 to 10 minutes or until browned, turning once. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Add patties on grill pan to grill rack, cover and grill as above.).
  4. Serve burgers on tostada shells. Top with additional salsa, cabbage, cilantro, cheese, and avocado. Makes 8 servings.
  5. Tip: Patties can be prepared as above through step 2 and frozen for 3 to 4 hours until firm. Place patties in an airtight freezer container and freeze up to 1 month. To serve, brush frozen patties with oil and grill as above for 8 to 10 minutes or until browned, turning once.
