Chipotle Black Bean Burgers

Serves 4


  • 1/4 cup – mayonnaise, light
  • 1 TBL – chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 15 ounce – black beans, canned
  • 1/2 medium – bell pepper, red
  • 1 stalk – green onion
  • 3 TBL – cilantro
  • 2 clove – garlic
  • 1/2 cup – oats
  • 1 large – egg
  • 3 tsp – cumin, ground
  • 1/4 tsp – sea salt
  • 1 – cooking spray
  • 4 medium – rolls, dinner, wheat
  • 1 medium – avocado
  • 2 cups, chunks – pineapple


In a small bowl, mix mayonnaise and chipotle peppers. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve dinner.

Drain and rise the beans, then pat dry. Add to a mixing bowl and mash well.

Add bell pepper, onion, cilantro, and garlic to a food processor; finely chop. Add in oats, egg, cumin, and sea salt; pulse a few times to begin to mix but do not puree together. Scoop the mixture into the bowl with the beans and stir together. Shape into patties, then place patties into a sealable container and freeze for two hours. (Didn’t freeze when we made them and turned out fine.)

Spray a skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium. Add patties and cook for 7-8 minutes, flipping over halfway through cooking. Serve on rolls, adding the mayo and chipotle mixture to taste.

Top bean burger with sliced avocado and serve with pineapple on the side.
