1chipotle pepper in adobo sauce * NOT the entire can(plus 2-3 teaspoons adobo sauce)
2minced garlic cloves
2tablespoonstomato sauce(or salsa)
1/2cupcorn(fresh or frozen and defrosted)
avocado for topping
Cooking spray or olive oil,or canola oil for frying patties
In a small bowl, mix together the ground flax and water. Let sit for five minutes.
Add one can of beans, onion, chipotle pepper, adobo sauce, garlic, cumin and salt to a food processor and pulse until mixture resembles chunky black bean dip.
Transfer the mixture in the food processor to a large bowl and stir in the remaining black beans, tomato sauce, breadcrumbs, flax and corn. Stir well until everything is combined.
Heat a little olive oil in a skillet on medium high heat. Form black bean mixture into patties and fry for about 8-12 minutes per side, until crispy and golden brown. The amount of cooking time will depend on your preference for crispiness on the outside of the burger.
Serve patties on buns or in a salad or tortilla and topped with any favorite burger toppings, such as guacamole or avocado slices, lettuce, sliced red onion, salsa, ketchup, mustard and/or mayo.
*Most any type of bean will work in place of the black beans.If you don’t have a food processor, you can mash the black beans with a potato masher (or fork) and mince the onion, chipotle pepper and garlic.Photos by Sasha at Eat Love Eats.
