Serving Size: 6 burgers

2 cans black beans

3 cloves garlic, grated

1 egg

1/2 small red onion

1 tsp Kosher salt

1 tsp ground pepper

2 Tbsp olive oil

1 tsp cumin

1/2 cup breadcrumbs or oat flour

1 slice cheddar cheese (Cabot Sharp Cheddar Cheese slice)

Blake Hill’s Chipotle Maple Spicy Chili Jam



Transfer half the beans to a large bowl and set aside


Transfer the remaining beans to a food processor with 1 tablespoon of Chipotle Maple Jam, red onion, garlic, breadcrumbs, egg, cumin and a large pinch of salt and pepper


Pulse until well minced and thoroughly combined


*If you do not have a food processor* In a separate bowl, whisk eggs with cumin, salt and pepper and use a fork to mash ½ of the black beans. Add garlic, onion and bread crumbs to black beans, pour in egg mixture, and fold ingredients together until combined and egg is fully distributed


Add mashed bean mixture to the other ½ of the black beans still whole and stir to combine


Refrigerate burger mixture for at least 30 minutes as this helps the burger stay intact when cooking (store mixture in refrigerator for up to 5 days)


Heat the remaining olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat (optional: burgers can be cooked in the oven instead of on the stove top)


Form the cooled mixture into 6 equally sized burger patties by hand or with burger form


Sauté patties in batches, cooking each side of the burger for 3-4 minutes or until a dark, golden brown crust forms. Add olive oil as needed as you sauté the burgers (place burgers on a baking sheet in the oven at 200°F to keep warm)


Top with Chipotle Maple Jam and serve with your favorite roll or over a bed of greens with veggies and/or cheese and Enjoy!
