Southwestern Beef & Bean Burger Wrap

Servings: 4
Preparation time: 25 minutes


12 ounces  93%-lean ground beef
1 cup  refried beans
1/2 cup  chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon  chopped pickled jalapenos
1   avocado, peeled and pitted
1/2 cup  prepared salsa
1/8 teaspoon  garlic powder
4   whole-wheat tortillas, warmed (see Tip)
2 cups  shredded romaine lettuce
1/2 cup  shredded pepper Jack cheese
1   lime, cut into 4 wedges
1. Position oven rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler. Coat a broiler pan with cooking spray.  

2. Gently combine ground beef, beans, cilantro and jalapenos in a medium bowl (do not over-mix). Shape into four 5-by-2-inch oblong patties and place on the prepared pan. 
3. Broil the patties until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center reads 165 degrees F, 12 to 14 minutes.  

4. Meanwhile, mash together avocado, salsa and garlic powder in a small bowl. 
5. Place tortillas on a clean work surface. Spread each with the guacamole, then sprinkle with lettuce and cheese. Top each with a burger and roll into a wrap. Serve immediately, with lime wedges.
