Author Andrew

Ingredients

  • 2 - 15 ounce cans black beans rinsed and drained
  • 2 cups tortilla chips
  • 1 cup cooked brown rice cooled
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3 clove garlic
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil + more

Optional toppings:

  • Buns or tostada shells
  • Lettuce
  • Salsa
  • Greek yogurt plain (or sour cream)
  • Fresh cilantro leaves chopped
  • tomatoes
  • mashed avocado

Instructions

  1. In a food processor, add 1 1/2 cans of beans (reserving 1/2 can until later), tortilla chips, rice, onion, salsa, cumin, and garlic.
  2. Turn food processor on and combine well until a thick puree has formed.
  3. Add remaining 1/2 can of black beans to food processor and pulse 2-3 times, just until combined. These should still be chunky.
  4. With a little olive oil on your hands, shape mixture into 6 patties.
  5. Brush both sides of patties with olive oil.
  6. Cook on a grill 3-4 minutes on each side (or in a skillet over medium heat).
