Directions

  1. Mash beans with a fork in a large bowl. Stir in rice, onion, egg, bread crumbs, and 2 tablespoons salsa; mix well.
  2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat; drop bean mixture by 1/2-cupfuls into skillet and flatten to 1/2-inch thickness. Cook until each side is firm and browned, 4 to 5 minutes per side.
  3. Combine sour cream and 4 tablespoons salsa in a small bowl. Place a bean burger on bun with a lettuce leaf, 1 slice Cheddar cheese, and top with salsa mixture. Repeat with remaining ingredients.

I threw everything into the food processor.. cooked up well. I liked the flavor. For my tastes, it needed more seasonings

We was not told where to put the bread crumbs, so I'm assuming they would go in with the beans and brown rice.

I made this recipe without the bread crumbs from a recipe I had copied from the June/July issue 2003 of Taste of Home magazine. The recipe is almost identical except for bread crumbs. I seasoned the burger with seasoning salt, pepper and a little garlic salt. If you want a little more kick, your choice of salsa will make a difference. You may use egg substitute if desired, results are the same. Top with your favorite condiments, vegetables. Enjoy!

I have never tried black bean burgers let alone made them at home so I was a little nervous but they turned out great, used the salsa/sour cream (or in my case greek yogurt) mix on the side w/just the black bean patties no bun and they were really tasty and filling. My skeptical fiancee who be-grudgingly has agreed to some meatless meal nights even liked them!

I love black beans and have never had black bean burgers so I made this and my husband and I liked them.

Although these taste good, they are very pasty and stick to the roof of your mouth. The tackiness makes them difficult to form into burgers so, overall I wasn't impressed.

Great base recipe. Would like to try adding mushrooms and walnuts or pecans...
