If you’re looking for a burger recipe with a twist give this mince recipe a try and you’ll just love it. Using kidney beans to really make the mince go further and fill you up, these burgers have a lovely smoky flavour thanks to the paprika and mix of spices used to flavour the meat.

You’ll need a couple of hours to let the meatballs firm up, but trust us when we say it’s worth the wait for this flavoursome dish. Served up on a bun with guacamole and tortilla chips, it’s a great alternative for your usual burger recipe that will have the whole family talking.



  • 400g can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 500g beef steak mince
  • 1
  • ½
  • tbsp tomato purée
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 large free-range egg yolk
  • 10 cornichons, very finely chopped
  • large handful coriander leaves, finely chopped
  • 1-2tsp dried crushed chipotle chilli, or chipotle paste
  • ¼
  • tsp sweet smoked paprika
  • 1tbsp sunflower oil


  • Mash up the kidney beans with a fork. Put the mince, kidney beans, tomato purée, garlic, egg yolk, cornichons, coriander, chilli and paprika in a large bowl and use your hands to mix well. Divide into 6 equal portions then shape into burgers. Cover and set aside in the fridge to firm up for at least 2 hours or overnight. You need them to firm up well or they may fall apart on the grill.

  • Prepare your barbecue for direct heat. Brush the burgers lightly with the oil and cook for around 4 minutes on each side or until cooked through. Serve on a bun, if you like, with guacamole and tortilla chips.
