Pace Black Bean Burgers

I got this recipe last week from Campbell and tried it out. It went over BIG with the friends I cook for. I think you and your family will enjoy it, too. This is wonderful for backyard cookouts.

1 jar (16 ounces) Pace Black Bean & Roasted Corn Salsa
1 1/2 lb. ground beef*
6 sesame hamburger buns

Mix 1 cup salsa and the beef thoroughly in a large bowl. Shape the beef mixture firmly into 6 patties.
Cook the patties in a 12-inch skillet or grill pan over medium-high heat for 10 minutes or until they're well browned on both sides and cooked through. Or, medium-high heat on your grill. Cook until the burgers are medium to medium well.
Serve the burgers on the buns with the remaining salsa.

*Substitute 1 1/4 pounds of ground turkey for the ground beef and combine with 3/4 cup salsa.

Tip: Top each burger with 1 slice Monterey Jack or Cheddar cheese during the last 3 minutes of cooking. Top with sliced avocado, tomato and lettuce.

Serves 6.
