Chipotle Black Bean Burgers
- 1 1/2 cups black beans (drained and rinsed)
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 1/2 cup roasted red peppers (chopped)
- 3/4 cup cooked brown rice
- 1 tsp. sea salt
- 1 tsp. paprika
- 1/4 tsp. chipotle chile pepper powder (I use McCormick brand) **add more if you like things spicy
- 1 egg
When ready to prepare, heat a non-stick skillet to medium. Spray with non-stick spray and add spoonfuls of the mixture to the skillet. Slightly press each burger with the back of the spoon. Cook 5 min. or so on one side and then flip and repeat with the other side. Be very careful in flipping so they don't fall apart.
Remove from skillet and serve warm! I like to serve mine on a salad with salsa verde, Greek yogurt and avocado or in a whole grain pita or wrap! You could also serve this like a burger in a Ezekiel english muffin with organic ketchup, lettuce, tomato and a little Sriracha!
