These aren't your ordinary black bean burgers. These patties are loaded with savory, spicy and smoky flavor! Absolutely delicious and easy enough for a weeknight dinner!
Place the beans, breadcrumbs, onion, garlic, cilantro, lime juice, cumin, chili powder, chipotle chile powder, and ½ teaspoon of salt into the bowl of a food processor fitted with an s-blade.
Pulse the machine until the ingredients are finely chopped and well-mixed.
Taste-test the mixture and season with additional salt if needed. Adjust any other seasonings to your liking.
Shape the black bean mixture into 4 patties.
Coat the bottom of a large skillet with the oil and place it over medium heat.
When the skillet is hot, place the patties into it. Avoid crowding the skillet and cook them in batches if needed.
Cook the patties for about 5 minutes on each side, until lightly browned.
Stuff the patties into buns and top with toppings of choice. Serve.
