  • 2 cans black beans
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 tsp chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • spinach (optional)
  • guacamole for topping (optional)
  • tomato and onion for topping (optional)


  1. Begin by draining your cans of beans. Once they're mostly drained, place them in a large bowl and begin to mash them to where they are almost fully in refried bean style with a few whole beans still left in. See photo in blog post for reference.

  2. Add in the chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, cumin, chili powder, salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder. Mix together. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary. 

  3. Add in your egg and mix to combine. Add in your breadcrumbs last. Mix to combine. Section your bean mixture into fourths, take a fourth of the mixture in your hand, roll it into a ball and then flatten it into a patty. 

  4. In a skillet over medium high heat, add a tsp of olive oil and begin to fry your patties. Cook on each side for 3-4 minutes until crispy. 

  5. Place on a bun and load up with toppings of your choice! Eat while hot! Enjoy!
