Spicy Mexican Bean Burger !!!

Spicy Mexican Bean Burger yield: 8 - 10 burgers

  • 16 ounce can of red kidney beans, drained and mashed
  • 1/2 cup small onion, coarsley chopped
  • 1/2 green pepper, coarsley chopped
  • 1 carrot, steamed and mashed
  • 1/8 cup picante sauce or salsa (spicy or mild to your taste)
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 tsp. black pepper (or to taste)
  • dash of chili powder
  • Mix all ingredients together. Add more flour to create a firmer mixture, or more salsa if mixture is too stiff. Form into balls and smash into patties. Bake at 450 degrees for 15 - 20 minutes, until firm, brown and done. Serve on a whole wheat bun with lettuce, tomato and salsa.

    We made these veggie burgers and they were so delicious! for a side dish, we had roasted potatos.
