And this recipe is one of those 'Culinary SOS' recipes... the reader was asking for The Getty Center Mexican Black Bean Burgers.... and boy are they delightful!
Getty Center Mexican Black Bean Burgers
- 2 - 15oz cans of black beans drained
- 1/4 cup diced onion
- 1/12 cup diced red bell pepper
- 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 egg
- 1 cup bread crumbs
- 2 tablespoons cilantro
Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add 3 patties and fry about 2-3 minutes per side, turning once. Add another tablespoon of olive oil and fry the remaining 3 patties.
Place each patty in hamburger roll and serve with salsa and guacamole, if desired.
This time I added some chipotle sour cream and pepper jack cheese to it... it really is a fabulous burger. The first time my husband ate it, he thought it was a real burger... he had no idea it was just a black bean mixture... I think you're going to love this recipe...
I thought I'd add a little side note about The Getty Center... if you're ever in the L.A. area. I can't choose which I like more... but if you have a chance going to one (or both) of The Getty Centers will make for a lovely day! The Getty Center in Malibu it's a wonderful educational center and museum dedicated to the study of the arts and cultures of ancient Greece, Rome, and Etruria and the The Getty Center in Los Angeles has Getty's collection of Western art from the Middle Ages to the present... both locations have tranquil gardens, and breathtaking views. They are two of my favorite places to go....
Have a lovely day... and let me know if you try this recipe...
