Recipe from: Look, Dude, I Can Cook!; Four Years of College Cooking Made Easy  by Amy Madden


    • 1 15- to 16-ounce can black beans, rinsed, drained
    • 1/3 cup chopped red onion
    • 1/3 red bell pepper chopped
    • 1/3 cup canned corn drained
    • 1/2 cup dry breadcrumbs
    • 2 tablespoons plus ½ cup of bottled chunky salsa
    • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
    • 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce (such as Tabasco)
    • Salt and pepper
    • 2 whole wheat buns


In a medium bowl, mash ¾ of the beans.

Add the onion, red bell pepper, corn, breadcrumbs, 2 tablespoons salsa, cumin and hot sauce. Season with salt and pepper. Mix together well and then add the rest of the black beans. Gently mix.

Rub hand with a little olive oil and make 2 4-inch diameter patties.
