Prep Time



Total Time






bag (24 oz) Green Giant™ Steamers™ Value Size frozen cauliflower & three cheese sauce
can (15 oz) Progresso® black beans, drained, rinsed
tablespoons chopped green onions (2 medium)
clove garlic, peeled
teaspoon salt
cups cooked white rice
cup coarsely crushed tortilla chips
cup Progresso® plain panko crispy bread crumbs
About 6 tablespoons vegetable oil
cup salsa or pico de gallo
Crema or sour cream, if desired
  1. Cook frozen cauliflower as directed on bag; open bag and cool 10 minutes. In food processor, place beans, green onions, garlic, salt and the cauliflower. Cover; process until smooth. Stir in rice and crushed tortilla chips. Shape mixture into 14 patties, each about 1/2 inch thick and 3 inches in diameter, using about 1/3 cup bean mixture for each. Coat patties with bread crumbs. Refrigerate about 1 hour so mixture holds together.
  2. In 12-inch skillet, heat 2 tablespoons oil over medium heat. Cook 4 patties in oil 4 to 6 minutes, turning once, until light golden brown. Repeat until all patties are cooked, adding oil as needed.
  3. Serve patties topped with pico de gallo and drizzled with crema.
