1  medium red onion, diced, divided (about 1 cup)

1/2 cup frozen super sweet corn, defrosted

3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

12 tablespoons sugar

3 small flour or corn tortillas cut into 2 inch by 1/2 inch pieces

1 tablespoon olive oil, divided

1/8 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon black pepper

1 large green pepper, diced (about 1 1/2 cups)

2 Morningstar Farms Spicy Black Bean Burgers, defrosted and diced

2 tablespoons tomato paste

2 medium roma tomatoes, diced (about 1 cup)

2 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, regular or dairy-free, grated

2 large mangos, diced (about 1 cup)

Sour cream, regular or dairy-free, optional

Avocado, diced, optional

Cilantro, chopped, optional


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a small saucepan, combine 1/2 cup onion, corn, vinegar, sugar, and 1/4 cup water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until most of the liquid is gone, about 10-15 minutes.

Toss cut tortillas with 1 1/2 teaspoons of olive oil, salt, and pepper. Coat a large baking sheet with pan spray. Arrange tortillas in a single layer on baking sheet. Bake, stirring once, for 12 minutes or until golden brown and crisp.

Heat remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil in large skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Add remaining 1/2 cup onion and all of the green pepper. Saute 4 minutes or until soft.

Add veggie burger to skillet. Cook until lightly browned, about 4 minutes. Reduce heat to low, add tomato paste, stir well, and cook an additional 2 minutes.

Layer veggie burger filling in bowls and add toppings: pickled corn and onions, shredded cheese, diced tomato, tortilla strips, mango, etc.


Feel free to use more or less sugar to pickle the corn and onions, depending on your preference. Less sugar will give a more tart and tangy pickle, and more sugar will result in a sweeter pickle. Both are delicious accompaniments to this dish.

Nutrition analysis does not include sour cream, avocado, or cilantro.
