i just made these for the first time and they were wonderful. i was really surprised but they held together perfectly! i rinsed the black beans, drained them, then spread them out on the baking sheet to dry while i prepared the rest of the ingredients. i also squeezed the water out of the onions, garlic, and bell pepper as best as i could with a paper towel. instead of the breadcrumbs i used 1 1/2 cups of quick oats, which made the burgers very dense (they could easily be a substitute for a beef patty this way). this is definitely one of my new weekly recipes- i'm a vegetarian and these provide tons of protein, fiber, nutrients, and carbohydrates in a quick, cheap, easy meal. next time i make this recipe i will probably add 1/2 a cup of each carrots, mushrooms, and perhaps soybeans, reduce the oats to 1 cup, add 2 tablespoons of flaxseed, make 6 servings instead of 4, and reduce the chili powder to 2 teaspoons. i should also mention that i plugged this recipe into the calorie-count.com recipe analyzer and the numbers are extremely different than the values on this site, so for the health conscious i would double check. either way this is a delicious, wonderful recipe!!
