My husband and I were in the mood for cooking outside on a beautiful fall day before a football game. We start by prepping the outdoors with our canopy, turn on the music, and grill away. We enjoy cold beverages and each other’s company while cooking out in our backyard!
The weather was crisp, clear, and cool, but my husband’s grill was hot! He barbecues on the weekends for enjoyment and to prepare meals for the week ahead. We enjoy chicken, beef, and pork on the grill, but this weekend we wanted something a little lighter. Our main goal was to prepare a meal with fresh veggies and a lot of taste! That’s why we chose MorningStar Farms® products. They are not only for vegetarians – they are for everyone!
Hamburgers fresh from the grill are delicious. We planned to grill MorningStar Farms® Spicy Black Bean Burger patties – America’s #1 Veggie Burger for game time! We created a delicious recipe — a Southwestern Black Bean Guacamole Burger. This recipe is perfect for family gatherings and also makes a great recipe at your next tailgate! I saw a great offer at Ibotta and took advantage of the great rebate, and I hope you take advantage of it, too. Rebate valid on MorningStar Farms® Frozen Veggie. Buy 3 for any variety, any size. While you are here, visit the MorningStar Farms social hub where you can find great recipe inspiration!

Let’s get right to it! Here’s the recipe for the Southwestern Spicy Black Bean Guacamole Burger!
Southwestern Spicy Black Bean Guacamole Burger
- MorningStar Farms® Spicy Black Bean Burger Patties
- Hamburger Buns
Gather your fresh ingredients and thinly slice tomatoes and onions.
Rub olive oil on tomatoes and onions. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
While the grill is hot, add tomatoes and onions to the grill. They only needed to be grilled for about 5 minutes and were a delicious addition to our new black bean burger recipe.
Finally, when the grill reaches about 350F degrees, add the MorningStar Farms® Spicy Black Bean Burger Patties. Grill on both sides for about 5 minutes on each side.
Most weekends, we enjoy guacamole as a side dish, but this weekend, we prepared guacamole specifically for the burgers. I like to use guacamole in place of condiments like mustard or mayo. It’s fresh, tasty, and delicious on this black bean burger.
Here’s our guacamole recipe that we LOVE!
