Killin’ It in the Kitchen:

Kelsey Gibb and Emily Drewel

This week we have a hearty bean burger recipe that will leave you full and satisfied whether or not you are a vegetarian! We made a fiesta night of it, and trust us, these burgers go great with some guacamole, pico de gallo and, of course, margaritas. This rec-ipe makes four to five burgers. We recommend doubling it and making a bulk batch since they freeze well and you can heat them up in a pan later when you need a quick fix!

1 can black beans

••• onion, chopped

3 cloves garlic, chopped

1 tbsp chili powder

1 tbsp cumin

2 tbsp green chiles, chopped

Salt and pepper to taste

••• cup breadcrumbs

1 egg

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2. Drain black beans and place into a medium mixing bowl. Mash

the beans with a fork until smooth with some

larger bean pieces.

3. Add all ingredients but breadcrumbs and egg,

mixing well.

4. Add egg and breadcrumbs. Mix until

well-bound.

5. Form mixture into bean patties.

6. Place patties on a well-oiled baking

sheet, then bake for 10-12 minutes on

each side.
