Tonight, my lovely partner Lily made these burgers out of some odds and ends we had in the fridge. They came out pretty well! We will probably use this recipe as a base and just throw different beans, vegetables, grains and starches together depending on what we have on hand. I?ve listed some other ingredients below that I thought would make these burgers a little more southwestern-y! Additional options you could add to these patties: Half a green or red pepper, chopped and sauteed with the onion and garlic. Roughly chopped sprigs of fresh cilantro. Thinly sliced sun-dried tomatoes. A few pinches of red pepper flakes.

Recipe Ingredients for Experimental Southwest Bean Burgers

1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup cooked brown rice
6 corn muffin mix
1/4 cup bread crumbs
3 medium Potatoes, Red, Flesh And Skin, Baked
2 small eggs, beaten
15 1/4 ounce can black beans, drained
1 1/2 cups corn, drained
1/2 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp cayenne powder
1 tbsp curry powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper

Recipe Directions for Experimental Southwest Bean Burgers

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

  2. Boil the potatoes until cooked, but not too mushy. Mash them up, but leave it chunky.

  3. Meanwhile, saute the onion and garlic in the olive oil. In a large bowl, roughly mash a little less than half the can of black beans with a fork. Add the rest of the can of whole black beans, chunky potatoes, corn, brown rice, box of corn bread mix, bread crumbs, eggs, onion, garlic, and spices. Stir together until well mixed.

  4. Drop about 1/4 ? 1/2 cup of the mixture onto an oiled cookie sheet. With fingers, form into patties. Put into the oven for 20 minutes, or until the underside is crisp and brown. Flip them over, and put back into the oven for 5 minutes to crisp the other side.

  5. Makes 10 ? 15 patties, depending on size.

  6. Serve with salsa, sour cream, or guacamole.
