Who says veggie burgers are boring? You'll get a kick out of these zesty Mexican-style bean and corn burgers topped with a citrus-hot sauce of lime juice, yogurt, scallions, and mustard. Regular burgers and their "secret sauces" can coat your arteries with more saturated fat than most of us should have for three days. With our Pritikin burgers, you're enjoying tons of flavor, zero saturated fat, and a lot of soluble fiber from the beans. A diet rich is soluble fiber has been proven to lower blood cholesterol.
