Black Bean Burgers
Black beans are mixed with breadcrumbs and spiced with chili powder to create one delicious patty. Avocado adds a refreshing creamy topping to this hearty bean burger.
Kids: In a large bowl, mix together the black beans, refried beans, bread crumbs, egg and chili powder.
Together: Divide the mixture into four parts. Make 4 equal sized patties with your hands and place the patties on wax paper.
Together: Place another piece of wax paper on top of the patties and press down slightly.
Together: Refrigerate for at least several hours or overnight or place in a freezer for about an hour to allow the burgers to take shape.
Adults: If grilling, place a piece of tin foil on the grill and over high heat. Cook on the grill burgers for about 8 minutes per side.
Adults: If pan frying, coat a large skillet with a light layer of vegetable oil and place over medium-high heat. Fry black bean patties about 3 minutes per side, or until a crunchy crust forms.
Adults: Serve on hamburger buns topped with avocado slices and whatever other burger condiments you like.
