Recipe Continues Below
- In medium bowl, mix beans, corn, rice, bread crumbs, onion, cilantro and taco seasoning mix. Shape mixture into 12 patties, using a heaping 1/4-cup scoop for each. Pat down gently so each patty is about 2 1/2 inches in diameter and 1/2 inch thick. Refrigerate at least 20 minutes (for easier handling, refrigerate up to 2 hours).
- Heat 10- to 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon of the vegetable oil; cook 6 patties in oil, 3 minutes on each side, until nice brown crust forms. Repeat with remaining oil and patties.
- Serve in lettuce leaves as wraps, with tomatoes and avocado.
- These Veggie Burger Lettuce Wraps are delicious with a drizzle of hot sauce.
- This recipe is a great opportunity to learn how to use lettuce as a burger bun, but this veggie patty is also delicious with a regular slider bun too.
- Top Veggie Burger Lettuce Wraps with a sprinkle of Old El Paso™ Shredded 3 Pepper Cheese Blend or Mexican Style 4 Cheese Blend, or top with Old El Paso™ Crema Mexicana Sour Cream.
