I was looking at Foodgawker, and An Edible Mosaic had a recipe up for bean burgers as an easy inexpensive meal. This is my variation, modded for a slightly different flavor profile and to use up some of the veggies in my fridge.
1 can (or equivilent) black beans, well drained
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
1/2 bell pepper
Mince, or crush with a potato masher, the beans. dice the onion and the pepper, then add to beans. Dice the jalapeno, and add into the bean mixture along with pepper and adobe to taste. Add egg and panko-you may need more panko if the bean mixture is wet.
Shape into roughly fist sized patties. Fry on medium heat for 4-5 minutes on each side.
Serve with your favorite toppings. I won’t judge you if you put bacon on them.
*I used my fridge pickled peppers. Use to taste.
**Adobo is a seasoning blend. You can get it low salt or salt free from Penzey’s. Use to taste.
