These were fabulous. I prefer to make them more like a patty so that I can use the leftovers on a hamburger bun as a Mexiburger with smashed avocados and the pico de gallo on top of the patty. One thing that surprises me is that Eating Well continues to publish recipes with canned food items. Given the recent bad press about Bisphenol A (BPA) which is highly suspect in contributing to obesity and other serious medical problems in humans. Instead of canned beans, boil up a pot of your own dried beans and freeze in 2-cup portions. Just make sure the beans are "refrigerator cold" if you are using freezer bags before portioning out and freezing. Hot foods and plastics are a no-no.
