Chipotle Black Bean Burgers

This is my favorite lunch. It is filling and energizing for my day. I always use half a bun for my burger and add a side of cottage cheese for extra protein.

Black Bean Patty

  • 15 oz drained seasoned black beans cans 
  • 3/4 cup old fashioned oats (made into flour or almond flour)
  • 3 tsp onion powder

  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper

Chipotle Mayo (mix it all together)

  • 1 & 1/2 cups high quality mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp dill pickle juice
  • 3-6 chipotle peppers from a can
  • 2-3 tablespoons adobo sauce from the can
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, packed

Make it

  • In a food processor, or a large blender, combine half the black beans, egg, rolled oats, onion powder, adobo pepper and liquid, salt, ground cumin, and black pepper. Pulse mixture for 30 seconds, pausing halfway to mix.

  • Form 8 patties, each using about a ⅓ cup of black bean mixture. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before cooking.
  • Preheat a skillet and drizzle some olive oil in it. Cook one or two patties at a time 2-3 minutes on each side (please note these don’t stay together to well don’t be surprised.
  • Keep it together the best you can and put it on a 1/2 bun topped with chipotle mayo and some lettuce – eat with a fork and enjoy!
