Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs or panko crumbs
  • 1/2 cup yellow cornmeal, finely ground
  • 1/2 cup LA VICTORIA® SUPREMA® Salsa
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • For Avocado Tomatillo Sauce:
  • 1 cup LA VICTORIA® Green Taco Sauce
  • 1 avocado, seed removed and peeled
  • 1/4 cup sour cream, low-fat
  • Salt and pepper

Cooking Directions

  1. Place the black beans in the food processor and process until smooth. Add the breadcrumbs, cornmeal, salsa, cumin, garlic powder and salt and pepper. Process until well combined.
  2. Form six 1/2-inch patties from the mixture and place on a waxed or parchment paper lined baking sheet. Refrigerate burgers at least 1 hour or up to 4 hours before cooking.
  3. Meanwhile, make the Avocado Tomatillo Sauce by combining the LA VICTORIA® Green Taco Sauce, avocado and sour cream in the food processor. Blend until smooth, season, then refrigerate until ready to serve.
  4. Heat barbecue or grill pan over medium heat; lightly coat with oil. Place the patties on the grill or in pan and cook until browned and heated through, about 5 minutes per side.
  5. Serve the burgers on toasted hamburger buns slathered with the Avocado Tomatillo Sauce and your favorite toppings.
