Ingredients

  • 3 (15oz) cans S&W® Black Beans (drained, rinsed) (divided)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 4 green onions, sliced (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups dry breadcrumbs
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 avocado, peeled, chopped

Directions

Place 2 cups of the beans and the eggs in food processor. Cover; process 20 seconds or until smooth. Add remaining beans, bell pepper, onions, cilantro and garlic. Cover; pulse 4 or 5 times or until coarsely chopped. Spoon into large bowl. Stir in breadcrumbs and all seasonings. Divide mixture into eight portions and form each into a 3.5” patty on cookie sheet. Cover; refrigerate at least 1 hour, or up to 4 hours.

When ready to serve, spread 1 tablespoon of the oil over bottom of 12-inch nonstick skillet. Heat over medium heat. Cook each cake about 3 minutes per side or until golden brown and thoroughly heated (160°F). Remove to platter to keep warm. Repeat with remaining oil and cakes until all are cooked. Top each with salsa, sour cream and avocado.

Tip: To keep the patties warm, heat oven to 250°F. Place cooked cakes on a cookie sheet and place in oven until all are cooked.

If mixture is a little sticky, dampen your hands to form the cakes.
