Staples like canned black beans and frozen corn transform into spicy croquettes in mere minutes. Serve with warm corn tortillas, coleslaw and lime wedges.

"This recipe is delicious. i made it two days ago, followed the directions to a t, and didn't have a problem with moistness or shape retention. It could have had a bit more flavor, but over all it was amazing. I'm actually making it again...

Have made this several times, and it is a big hit. Easy, quick and satisfying. The kids also enjoy it as an after school healthy snack.

very good . I was skeptical, but they were great

All in all a pretty simple recipe. Needs a little more spice, but I served it over the salsa and added a piece of grilled salmon over some sauteed zucchini and yellow squash. Wow what a wonderful meal!!

very good flavor and they held together nicely.
Wow are these good!

I thoroughly enjoyed these. Thank you!!!

Surprisingly Good

This is a delicious alternative if you just want a meat break. it is very healthy and the flavor was great. I didn't adjust anything other than the fact I didn't add the extra salt. WIth cayenne pepper and bread crumbs that was enough salt for me.

healthy,tasty, easy to make
Excellent and Easy

I love black beans and saved this recipe, but never got around to making it. I wish I hadn't waited so long. It is excellent and easy to make. I make my own gluten free bread crumbs so they are slightly larger than the store bought kind, which added more crunchiness. I have already passed this recipe on to others.
