I got this recipe from http://www.babyfit.com/ I haven't tried it yet, but I think it's something that we'll all like. I'll let you all know how it goes....

Spicy Black Bean Burgers
by Tanya Barnard and Sarah Kramer

Serves: 6
Serving Size: 1 patty

INGREDIENTS (We're topping ours with cheddar cheese)

1/2 cup flour
1 small onion, (I'm using onion powder)
diced 2 cloves garlic,
minced 1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 small hot or jalapeno pepper, minced (I'm skipping this)
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 medium red pepper, (I'm using green)
diced 2 cups cooked or canned black beans, mashed
1/2 cup corn niblets
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1/4 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp chili powder
2 tbsp parsley, minced (optional)


1. On a small plate, set aside flour for coating. In a medium saucepan, sauté the onion, garlic, oregano, and hot peppers in oil on medium-high heat until the onions are translucent. Add the peppers and sauté another 2 minutes, until pepper is tender. Set aside.

2. In a large bowl, mash the black beans with a potato masher or fork. Stir in the vegetables (including the corn), breadcrumbs, cumin, salt, chili powder, and parsley. Mix well. Divide and shape into 6 patties.

3. Lay down each patty in flour, coating each side. Cook on a lightly oiled frying pan on medium-high heat for 5-10 minutes or until browned on both sides.

I've decided to switch up the recipe. It has far too many ingredients and steps for me.LOL I'm going to just add salsa instead of all the veggies and then season to taste. Should be much easier and taste just as good.
