Ban the Bland breakfast with Huevos Rancheros Burger, a meatless burger that mimics the flavors of the classic dish with a black bean burger and fried egg!

I found all of the ingredients I needed at Walmart for these amazing veggie breakfast burgers! You can click on the image above to get started ordering what you need (pretty neat, huh?).

If you’re heading to the store you can find the Pace® Salsa Verde in the Hispanic Foods aisle along with all of the other salsas.

When we were living on the East Coast I always complained because the big games always started so late meaning ! had to stay up super late to watch them. Now that we are on the West Coast I swear some of the games I want to watch are starting before I’ve even had breakfast!

So I thought a Huevos Rancheros Burger would be hearty choice for game day viewing but appropriate for the early morning hour. I hope you agree! I tried to mimic the flavors of Huevos Rancheros with Pace® Salsa Verde in the black bean burger to kick the flavor up.

It’s my easy shortcut to getting tons of flavor into a dish really quickly. Just like I did for the Quick Salsa Soup. You can use salsa for way more than just dipping and this burger and the Salsa Soup are two great ways to use it.

Now I know it looks like a lot of ingredients but the black bean burgers come together really quickly.

You want to mash up the black beans with a fork until they are mostly mashed but not completely mashed. I mean, I think it would be really hard to over mash it with a fork but you know, mash it until it looks kind of mushy with chunks of black beans. Yeah, I hope that clarifies things for ya!

Add some Pace® Salsa Verde, breadcrumbs, and an egg and mix it all together. When you’re forming the patties you want them to be roughly the same size as your buns because they won’t shrink like regular burgers.

They cook up really quickly and then you get to top them with a fried egg. We like our yolks hard so I fry them on both sides with a cracked yolk. But if you are into a traditional fried egg go for that!

My hubby’s burger was topped with sliced avocado but since I have that bizarre food allergy I don’t. And adding a hearty amount of the salsa spread made up of sour cream and Pace® Picante Sauce really tops it all off! You know, cause salsa makes everything better. At least that was my grandfather in law’s motto.

And don’t be afraid of using the spicier salsas because mixed all together it really tempers the heat. But Pace® has a variety of heat and textures so you can use whatever suits you best. I bought the 24 oz. Pace® Salsa Verde and 24 oz. Pace® Picante Sauce because you really can’t have too much salsa in this house.
