2
tablespoons chopped green onions (2 medium)
1

  • 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.

  • 3 Serve patties topped with pico de gallo and drizzled with crema.
