  • 1 Hour Total Time
  • 20 Minutes Prep Time
  • 12 Servings
  • 10 Ingredients

Ingredients

  • 1 can (16 oz) Old El Paso™ traditional refried beans
  • 1/2 cup whole kernel corn (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 cup frozen cooked white rice
  • 1/4 cup Progresso™ plain panko crispy bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon Old El Paso™ taco seasoning mix (from 1-oz package)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 12 Bibb lettuce leaves
  • Sliced tomatoes and avocados, if desired

Instructions

Step 1 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).

Step 2 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.

Step 3 Serve in lettuce leaves as wraps, with tomatoes and avocado.
