  • 1 can Giant Eagle black beans
  • 1 lime
  • 1 cup Tasty Bite® organic brown rice
  • 4 Tbsp. Giant Eagle taco seasoning, divided
  • ½ cup Giant Eagle shredded Pepper Jack
  • 1 bag Giant Eagle angel hair slaw
  • ¼ cup Giant Eagle mayo
  • 1 Tbsp. Giant Eagle canola oil
  • 4 Giant Eagle sliced wheat hamburger buns


Drain black beans and rinse. Cut lime in half and squeeze out the juice and set aside. Cook rice by following instructions on rice packet.

Place black beans in a large mixing bowl. Using a potato masher or fork mash the beans until they form a chunky paste. Fold in 1 cup of cooked rice, 2 tablespoons taco seasoning and the pepper jack cheese. Mix well.

Form the mixture into four equal balls and then form into patties. Place the patties in the freezer for 10 minutes to solidify.

Meanwhile in a bowl, mix the mayo, 2 tablespoons of taco seasoning and lime juice. Whisk well and then fold the slaw in.

In a frying pan, heat canola oil for one minute on high. Gently add in the black bean burgers and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side forming a nice crust (if you do not have a big enough pan cook in batches). While burgers are cooking, toast the buns for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown.

Place the burger on the toasted bun and top with cabbage slaw. Enjoy the extra slaw on the side!
