Dry, even tho I read reviews and added bean liquid. My easy to please husband asked me not to make again!
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 and am really enjoying it. I used canned pinto beans (rinsed and well drained) and I used pre-ground cumin. I bought smoked paprika specifically for this recipe....I've never used it before...and I have to say, if you're going to make this recipe, definitely get the smoked paprika. The smoky flavor really comes through in the burgers. I'm eating mine with guacamole and mixed greens on an Arnold Sandwich Thin and its great.
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!
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 : (
