Bet your booty black bean burgers
If I don't have time to defrost beef, I usually have these ingredients in my pantry. So this is always a sure-fire back up and a crowd pleaser. They can be grilled, broiled or fried, and they give my kids a healthy dose of black beans.
1 can of black beans, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup of scallions, diced
1/2 cup crushed tortilla chips
1/2 cup salsa, any variety
2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon of any flavor hot sauce
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro vegetable oil
Put all ingredients, except the oil, in a food processor and process until lumpy. Shape into patties. If frying, coat the pan sparingly with oil and fry over a medium heat for about 5 minutes per side. If broiling, brush the patties with oil and place under broiler for 2-3 minutes on each side. If grilling, brush the grill with oil so that the burgers don't stick and grill until heated through, about 3 minutes per side.
