Beefy Black Bean Mole Burgers

Author Notes: During the Bite of Seattle I heard about coffee-coated beef & since I am intrigued with roasted cocoa nibs I got the idea to put them into ground beef burgers. The addition of black beans increases the fiber content & the seasonings suggest mole sauce. Hoen

Serves: 8

  • 1/4 cup roasted cocoa nibs
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 15 oz can black beans, drained

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
