Description

Hamburgers topped with refried beans, Fritos and avocados in the same style as once served at EZ’s.


Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground chuck
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 3/4 cup shredded Cheddar or Pepper Jack
  • Refried Beans (I use fat-free or this recipe)
  • Fritos
  • Avocado slices or guacamole (optional)
  • Hamburger Buns
  • Directions:
  • First: Season ground chuck with salt and pepper. Lightly mix in cheese.
  • Second: Form meat into 4 balls. Flatten into patties and make depression in the middle with fingers. Lay on hot grill with depression up. Cook for 3-4 minutes. Do not flatten with spatula. Turn patties and cook until done. Grill or toast hamburger buns.
  • Third: Place meat patty on top of bottom bun. Spread a generous tablespoon of warmed refried beans on top of burger. Sprinkle a handful of crumbled chips on top of beans. If using avocados or guacamole, place on top of beans and Fritos. Replace top bun and lightly press down to squish toppings together for easier eating.
