Easy Peasy Black Bean Burgers

Probably the easiest black bean burger recipe ever. It's extremely satisfying and goes well with a slice of melted cheddar cheese on a hamburger bun with the fixings.

You'll need:

  • 2 cans of black beans (about 4 cups)- drained.
  • 1 cup of salsa (chunky style)
  • 1 1/4 cups breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon chili pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Dash of chipotle tabasco
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pepper to taste
  • Oil for skillet

Mash the beans in a large bowl, add in the salsa, breadcrumbs and spices. Combine until a nice even mix is achieved. Add in more breadcrumbs if mix is too wet to handle. Heat up a cast iron skillet. Meanwhile, shape 12 patties from the mashed mix. Pan fry them over medium heat (about 6-8 minutes per side) until golden brown. Or you can bake them in the oven on an oiled cookie sheet for 20 to 30 minutes.

Serve with all the fixings!

They freeze well.
