· 1 pound extra-lean ground beef· 1 onion, diced· 4 cloves garlic, minced· 1 jalapeno, minced· 1 red pepper, diced· 1 can small red beans or pinto beans, preferably low sodium drained and rinsed· 1 1/2 cups no-salt-added tomato sauce· 2 tablespoons tomato paste· 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar· 1 tablespoon molasses· 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce· 1 teaspoon mustard powder· 3/4 teaspoon salt· Freshly ground black pepper· 8 whole-wheat burger buns
Step 1Brown the meat and the onion in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat for 5 minutes, breaking up the meat into crumbles as it cooks. Pour the drippings out of the pan and discard. Add the garlic, jalapeno, and red pepper and cook 5 minutes more, stirring occasionally. Stir in the rest of the ingredients, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 5 minutes more. Place a half-cup scoop of the mixture onto each bun and serve.
