Ingredients

• 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

Directions

Brown 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.
