Spicy Black Bean Burgers

I never realized I was such a spicy girl until Grumpy told me I make everything spicy.  I guess he is really right. Well I have known for a while know that I’m spicy ;o)  lol.  In any case, that is what became of these black bean burgers and this is what has become my favorite version of all that I have tried, and I have tried several.  This version I adapted from one a friend gave me that I have posted about way back in the beginning of my blogging days.

I hope you will enjoy!  Spicy Black Bean Burgers can also be found on allrecipes.com as I have submitted this as a personal recipe.  If you belong to the site, you can add this recipe to your recipe box there too! 

Spicy Black Bean Burgers

1 small onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon dry oregano
1 jalapeno, seeded and minced
1 Tablespoon olive oil, using more if needed as frying
1/2 medium red pepper, diced
1 ear corn (uncooked), kernels removed from ear
1 (15 oz) can Bush Black Beans, drained, rinsed, and mashed
1/2 cup plain bread crumbs
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoon chili powder
1 Tablespoons minced cilantro
1/2 cup flour
Saute the onion, garlic, oregano and jalapeno in the oil until the onions are translucent. Add the red bell pepper and corn. Saute another 2 minutes until tender.
Mix the vegetable mixture into the mashed beans. Add the bread crumbs, cumin, salt, chili powder and cilantro. Divide up into 4 patties (each patty a little more than 1/2 cup mixture), coat each side in the flour. Cook on a lightly greased saute pan over medium heat until done. Serve as a sandwich or just as a patty (like I do!)

    Tried these last night… they were really good. Wondering if you have any suggestions for a sauce or something since they are kinda pastey in texture? My dad threw sautéed mushrooms in his burger and i tried some… really good too… maybe a mushroom sauce or something? thoughts? (something other than ketchup and mayo?)
