Mexican Recipes (Most Popular)
2 cups black beans (drained of any liquid)
1/4 cup sprouted bread crumbs (I use Alvarado St. Flaxseed Sprouted Lite Bread)
2 cloves garlic (minced really fine)
2 tbsp onion (minced really fine)
3 tbsp fresh cilantro (minced really fine)
1 large egg
1 teas hot sauce (or to taste)
Get Carlos or one of your children to read Drizzt for you while you fix dinner, or better off, ask him to create the most amazing burger ever. Just don't tell him it's healthy because he won't make burgers anymore, and you'll have to make them yourself!
The tools are important to achieve the best results.
First, you need a child, friend, or partner.
Second, get a good tool to make a thin patty. We use a tortilla press with two sheets cut off a silicon baking mat that fit in the press, but alternatively, you can use any other tool that lets you flatten the beef patty as thin as you can but without it breaking.
Before I got the silicon baking mat that I cut to the size to fit the tortilla press, I used two sandwich-size Ziploc bags as they fit in the tortilla press. My mom used two pieces cut out a plastic bag. As you see, it's good to be resourceful.
If a tortilla press is not available, use your hands as a press.
Third, get an iron skillet or use your barbecue grill. We've tried different pans, but the best results are achieved with the iron skillet or the barbecue, and these items are easier to clean than non-stick pans (!). Besides, my son feels more manly using an iron skillet, and I feel more trendy.
Third, get a cooking mat or board large enough to handle a good bunch of lettuce and a sharp large knife.
Fourth, make sure the environment is nice and inviting.
Now, let's get our child cooking, or let your child get you cooking.
