  • 1 can black beans drained {I don't rinse them, just drain the excess liquid}
  • ½ onion sauteed until soft
  • 1 teaspoon your favorite spice mix {I use McCormick Salt Free Fiesta Citrus}
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 to 1 ½ tablespoons cornmeal
  • 1 dash salt
  • Optional: Chipotle Mayo


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place a sheet of foil on a baking pan and lightly oil.
  • In a large bowl, combine the ingredients. Mash the beans lightly -- my favorite method is using a potato masher. I like some bean pieces to remain, but you can make it as mashed as you'd like. Note: You may have to add extra cornmeal if you mash too much.
  • Form burgers into patties - I usually make 4. Sliders are always fun, too.
  • Bake for about 10-12 minutes or until set. {They'll set up some more as they cool off.}
  • Optional: For Chipotle Mayo - Combine your favorite mayonnaise with a few drops of adobo sauce from a can of chipotles, and a squeeze of lime. Stir well.
  • Serve on buns {or not!} with your favorite toppings - cheese, lettuce, salsa, chipotle mayo, etc. See below for Roasted Poblano Salsa recipe.
