Total Time: 25 Minutes, Servings: 5 Servings

Ingredients :
    For the Burger:
  • 15 ounce can black beans , drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 green bell pepper
  • 1/2 small onion
  • 2 cloves garlic , peeled
  • 1 large egg , beaten (*see note below)
  • 2/3 cup whole wheat breadcrumbs
  • 1 Tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper , to taste
  • For the Chipotle Mayo Sauce:
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon adobo sauce (from a can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce)
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • hamburger buns
  • desired burger toppings: lettuce, tomato, etc.



Instructions :
    To make the Burger:
  • Place rinsed and drained black beans in a bowl. If needed, blot them with a paper towel to remove any extra moisture. Place in a large bowl and mash well with a fork.
  • Place the bell pepper, onion and garlic in a food processor and process until finely minced.
  • Transfer mixture to a fine mesh strainer to remove the excess water. (Remove as much moisture as you can--if it's too wet, the burger wont hold together as well.)
  • Add the strained vegetable mixture to the bowl with the black beans. Add the chili powder, cumin and salt and pepper and stir to combine.
  • Add beaten egg and mix. Stir in bread crumbs. Form mixture into 4 or 5 patties.
  • At this point you can choose to:
  • Grill the burgers on a well oiled grill for about 4-5 minutes on each side.
  • Bake them at 375 degrees F on a lightly oiled baking sheet, for 10 minutes on each side.
  • Cook them on your stove using a grill pan, for 4-5 minutes on each side.
  • Refrigerate them for later.
  • Freeze them, covered, in a freezer ziplock bag for a quick weeknight dinner in the future.
  • For the Chipotle Mayo Sauce:
  • Add all the ingredients to a food processor or blender and puree until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Serve burgers on a white or whole wheat bun topped with a spoonful of chipotle mayo, lettuce, tomato, cheese, avocado, or any other desired toppings! Enjoy!
  • Serve with one of these healthy side dishes!
