Southwestern Beef & Bean Burger Wraps

From: EatingWell

Kids and adults alike will love these quick, zippy burgers. The beans make the burgers a little fragile, so be careful when taking them off the broiler pan. Make it a meal: Serve a green salad and frozen mango slices for dessert.

Ingredients
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
Directions
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 overmix). 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.
Tip:
To warm tortillas: Wrap in foil; bake at 300 degrees F until steaming, about 5 minutes. Or wrap in barely damp paper towels and microwave on High for 30 to 45 seconds.

These were fantastic! Had a little trouble with them falling apart, but we just shoveled the meat into the wraps and made it work. I'm not an avocado fan at all, but that guacamole is also delicious! Will be making these again for sure :)

I would try this with a vegan touch, and it would most likely be wonderful. I have some great vegan ground meat.
