Inspired by Betty Crocker. Loved by Tami Montgomery.
1 can black beans, drained
1 c. crushed corn tortilla chips
1/4 c. TJ's salsa verde
1 tsp. chili powder
dash cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes
1/4 c. corn meal
2 T. olive oil
buns, condiments etc.
1. Place drained black beans in blender. Blend (may need to add egg if it's too dry). Pour mixture into bowl. Stir in crushed chips, salsa, chili powder and pepper. Mix well. (If it's not holding together well, add more crushed chips.)
2. Heat olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Put corn meal in a pie plate or shallow dish. Form black bean mixture into 6 patties. Dip each side into corn meal. Fry in olive oil until crispy. Serve on hamburger bun with lettuce, tomato, salsa, avocado, or whatever you want.
