  1. To make the refried bean burgers: Combine beef, beans, onion, seasoning mix and egg. Take 1/4 of the mixture and form into a burger slightly larger than a burger bun. Dust lightly with plain flour. Repeat with remaining mixture. Cover and chill until needed.
  2. When ready, heat some oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Shallow-fry burgers for 4-5 minutes on each side, turning once.
  3. To make the salsa: Combine tomatoes, red onion, chillies, coriander, garlic, salt and pepper. Chill until needed.
  4. To make the guacamole: Mash avocados until still slightly chunky. Add onion, lime juice, Tabasco, salt and pepper. Lightly stir to combine. Adjust seasonings to taste. Cover with cling film directly on the surface of the guacamole. This will prevent it from discolouring. Chill until needed.
  5. To assemble: Preheat a large frying pan over medium heat. Lightly butter the cut side of the buns and toast on the pan. Top base of buns with lettuce, burger, salsa, cheese, tortilla chips, guacamole and extra chillies and coriander. Enjoy!

These were SO easy to make and really yummy. I threw in some kidney beans and a slightly spicier fajita mix the second time round and they were amazing, a real hit with all the family. - 05 Aug 2013
