  • 1 (16 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed

  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon Thai chili sauce or hot sauce
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs


  1. If grilling, preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil a sheet of aluminum foil. If baking, preheat oven to 375°F (190°C), and lightly oil a baking sheet.
  2. Rinse black beans and dry thoroughly. In a medium bowl, mash beans until they are thick and pasty.
  3. In a food processor, finely chop bell pepper, onion and garlic. In a fine strainer, remove any excess water from this mixture, then stir into mashed beans.
  4. In a small bowl, stir together egg, chili powder, cumin, and chili sauce.
  5. Stir the egg mixture into the mashed beans. Mix in bread crumbs until the mixture is sticky and holds together. Divide mixture into four patties.
  6. If grilling, place patties on foil, and grill about 8 minutes on each side. If baking, place patties on baking sheet, and bake about 10 minutes on each side.
