This was absolutely delicious. I adjusted the recipe a bit. I put the beans, 1 clove garlic and a small onion in the food processor to mash it all up. Instead of breadcrumbs I used rolled oats. I stuck with the recommended seasoning and skipped the oil. They didn't come out as dense as the picture, but that was expected since I replaced the breadcrumbs with oats. I cooked them as advised and they were delicious. This will be a weekly meal going forward.

Very tasty, quick and fairly cheap to make. I ended up having to add extra bread crumbs to the mix in order to keep them from spreading out once on a cookie sheet. I served with some lime/cilantro rice and fresh guacamole. Got rave reviews and will definitely be making these again.
I made this for my husbands birthday dinner and the family loved them. I did add the juice and zest of a lime, did not use the oil in any part of the recipe, and they were perfect. I am going to make them and try them as a burger in a bun!
I bought fresh salsa from the market and added chopped avocado . This is a wonderful combination of textures and flavours.
I had already used my food processor to make the breadcrumbs, so it was a no-brainer to mash up the beans in the food processor, too. I did need to double the amount of breadcrumbs for the final step (rolling). It would be a real time saver to use canned tomatoes, but I used fresh. I would definitely make this one again!
My entire family loved this meal! it was easy to make, and reheated well the next day for lunch. Of course I changed it up a bit - used a bit more corn, tomatoes & cilantro, added lime juice & zest to both bowls, added garlic, diced jalapeno, & diced red onion to bean mixture, and served with mexican crema. Also substituted seasoned panko for the plain breadcrumbs. It was surprisingly delicious!
