Spicy Black Bean Burgers Recipe
Nutritious and Incredibly Filling
Sometimes we just do not want meat. Black bean burgers gives the impression of meat without the meat. It looks like a real hamburger, can be cooked like a real hamburger, can be dressed like a real burger, and tastes just as good as real burger.
I have noticed it is a lot more filling than ground beef. It is impossible to eat more than one of these babies. The following easy to make recipe allows for four servings that are high in protein, low in fat, and yummy.

Love Them or Hate Them?
How do you feel about black bean burgers?
- 2 small jalapenos diced
- 1 small onion diced
- One 19 oz can of black beans, lightly rinsed
- 1/2 cup bread crumbs
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 egg
Adding the egg is important. It keeps everything from falling apart when cooking.
Coarsely chop black beans with food processor (a pastry blender works in a pinch too). It should be chunky, not mushy. Add onions, egg and jalapenos.
In small bowl, mix bread crumbs with garlic powder and salt. Add to bean mixture and blend with spoon.
Shape mixture into four paddies. Apply to grill with your favorite barbecue sauce. I use an indoor grill with a preset temperature for ten minutes, turning after five.
Can also be done in pan on stove. I have not attempted cooking these on an outdoor grill as I'm not sure how well they would stay formed.

The Indoor Grill
Having an indoor grill makes cooking on the fly simple. It is great for hot sandwiches or to grill meats (or black bean burgers) for one or two people. We use ours at least once a week.
