This is the second time I've made this. The first time was quite a long while ago. Today I made sure to rinse and dry all the vegetables. I added in 1/3 - 1/2 cup corn and a small can of fire roasted green chiles. I mixed the beans with the spices first. I added 1 tbsp cumin, 2 tsp chili powder, 1 tsp garlic pepper, 1 tsp of my own chipotle spice mix, and a few shakes of liquid smoke. After I mixed that well, I took all the vegetables (which I chopped the onion and bell pepper finely -- the garlic I left whole) and put them in a bread loaf pan, mixed in some olive oil, and roasted them for awhile. I drained the vegetables after removing them and added them to the bean mixture. I pressed the garlic and mixed well. Instead of bread crumbs, I used 1/2 cup oats (run through the blender slightly), and wheat germ (oh, I have no idea how much -- I just added til it looked right, 1/3 cup maybe?). Instead of an egg, I used 2 tbsp ground flaxseed + 6 tbsp water, mixed. I added that last. I sprayed a lined baking sheet with Pam, sprayed my hands, and formed patties (then sprayed the tops of them). I got 6 good sized (but thinner) patties. All vegan too! For the rest of my family, I made up some chipotle mayo as suggested by other reviewers. I glanced at the recipe, but I didn't follow it exactly. I used a big glop of mayo, a big squirt of ranch, and most of a chipotle bouillion cube. Cumin was perfect, I thought.
