    1. Combine the yogurt, lime juice, and zest in a
    small bowl; stir and set aside.
    2. In a large mixing bowl, mash the beans slightly
    with a fork or potato masher. Add the breadcrumbs,
    cilantro, jalapeño, carrot, egg whites,
    and Taco Seasoning and combine. Divide into
    8 patties. Place the bean mixture in the palm of
    your hand, place 2 tablespoons of cheese into
    the center, then fold over into a patty.
    3. Preheat a flat nonstick skillet over moderate
    heat. Once warm, add the burgers and cook 3
    minutes per side. You can also cook the burgers
    on a baking sheet in a 350° F oven for 20
    4. Serve on a sandwich thin with lettuce and
    tomato, then divide the lime cream among the
    sandwiches or serve on the side.
