Burgers with Black Bean Relish

I know it’s Monday again and you really don’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen.  I understand so let’s make some comfort food that is very simple.

Burgers with Black Bean Relish


6 Hamburg’s
2 tbs Olive oil
1 tsp

1 tbs

Sea salt

Ground black pepper

1 med Onion
1 can Black beans
1 can Stewed tomatoes
1 can Chopped tomatoes
1 cup Corn, frozen
1 Chili for heat if wanted


Grill the burgers season with salt and pepper.  Remove burgers to serving plate.  Drain all but 2 tbs of pan drippings and over high heat sauté onions and chilies, if using, till soft.  Add 1 can of partially drained black beans, 1 can of stewed tomatoes, and 1 can chopped tomatoes.  Season the relish with salt and pepper.  Cook over high heat to reduce by 1/2, stirring often.  Halfway through reduction add 1 cup frozen corn.  Continue to reduce till relish thickens, stirring often.

Serve relish on top of burgers and mashed potatoes.
