We made these last night and they were very tasty and they blew away the store-bought versions. The guac had plenty of flavor and the burgers stayed together when cooking. We used a large pan and only cooked three at a tie so there was plenty of room to get the flipper under each patty. We followed the directions and they came out great!
Bean Burgers with Spicy Guacamole
These bean burgers will even please carnivores. The cornmeal coating gives a pleasant crunch and smoked paprika, cumin, cilantro and guacamole add Southwestern flavor.

I'm eating this right now! It is DELICIOUS! I halved the recipe because I'm onyl one person. I had zero problems with it falling apart, but I'm sure I let the bean patties refrigerate longer than 20 mins so that might have had something to do with it. I also didn't have smoked paprika or whole cumin seeds so I had to just use regular paprika and regular pre-ground cumin. I used canned pintos rinsed very well. I left out the onion in the guacamole because I was too lazy to chop some up but It still turned out wonderful. I put too much cilantro in the recipe too, but its only because I LOVE the stuff! GREAT recipe...got leftovers :)
Well, I'm not sure how to review this one. So far every recipe from this website has been 100% amazing! This one, probably amazing to those who seek SUPER healthy tasting meals, I prefer mine to be on the healthy side but not taste like it, hehe : ) I think the quinoa is probably the culprit of the super healthy tasting part, so who knows, maybe try it with rice??
They did turn out for me though, as far as the staying together part. I used canned blacked beans and didn't drain them, just poured them straight into the pan, i also used a tiny bit of the quinoa water when I was combining it all. But yeah, they stayed together perfectly fine in round little burgers!
Good luck, they are good, just not excellent, probably won't make again : (
Quite delicious! I found the mixture a bit dry and added some of the bean cooking liquid to moisten it slightly....probably no more than 1/3 cup. Will definitely make again. Although I haven't done it, I'm thinking that one could probably substitute brown rice or other cooked grain for the quinoa if you don't have it on hand.
I really feel sorry for the family of the person who doesn't want to take the time to prepare these and will buy the premade store bought (salt and soy filled processed crud) stuff. Healthy meals made from whole foods take a little time and my family is worth it.
