Updated March 19, 2013

Ingredients

  • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans with cumin and chili spices, undrained
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies, undrained
  • 1 cup plain dry bread crumbs
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 5 hamburger buns, toasted
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise or salad dressing
  • 1 1/4 cups shredded lettuce
  • 3 tablespoons thick-and-chunky salsa

Steps

  • 1
    Place beans in food processor or blender. Cover and process until slightly mashed; remove from food processor. Mix beans, chilies, bread crumbs and egg. Shape mixture into 5 patties, each about 1/2 inch thick. Coat each patty with cornmeal.
  • 2
    Heat oil in 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Cook patties in oil 10 to 15 minutes, turning once, until crisp and thoroughly cooked on both sides.
  • 3
    Spread bottom halves of buns with mayonnaise. Top with lettuce, patties, salsa and tops of buns.

  • Coating the patties with cornmeal gives them a delicious crispy coating. If the seasoned black beans aren't available, use unseasoned black beans and add one teaspoon chili powder.
