This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Albertsons Los Angeles. The opinions and text are all mine.

Today I extremely excited to be teaming up with my local Albertsons grocery store to bring you a healthy, nutritious, and easy recipe using one of my favorite dinner secret weapons - canned goods. Not only do canned goods save you money (they are normally 15-20% less expensive than fresh), they are are a great way to save time and get a healthy and nutritious meal on the table without lots of prep work, chopping, or time at the stove. Plus you probably already have what you need on hand at home, meaning you can throw this dinner together without a last minute trip to the grocery store.

On busy nights, one of my favorite ways to use canned goods is in a simple veggie burger packed with two types of beans, corn, and some fresh chopped vegetable. Using canned black beans, refried beans, and corn paired with fresh red bell pepper, red onion, cilantro, oats, lime juice, and some spices (things I almost always have at home), these Black Bean Lime Burgers make the perfect quick lunch or dinner. They only take 20 minutes to make from start to finish and are packed with fiber and good for you ingredients. Plus you can make up a big batch since they make great leftovers and freeze well.

  1. Add the black beans to the bowl. Make sure they are well drained and dry otherwise the burgers won't hold together as well. Mash a bit with a fork. Then mix in all the remaining ingredients with a spoon until well combined and thick. If the batter seems to thin, add a touch more flour.
  2. Form into patties.
  3. Cook in a skillet sprayed with cooking spray for 3-4 minutes per side or bake for 25 minutes at 375 degrees, flipping halfway through.
