This is a recipe I received from a friend that I have revised to suit our tastes. A spicy and delicious change from regular hamburgers!

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 ear corn, kernels cut from cob
  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • ½ cup plain bread crumbs
  • 4 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour, or as needed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, or as needed

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion, garlic, jalapeno pepper, and oregano until onions are translucent, 8 to 10 minutes. Cook and stir red bell pepper and corn into onion mixture until red bell pepper is tender, 2 to 4 more minutes.
  2. 2 Mash black beans in a large bowl. Stir vegetable mixture, bread crumbs, chili powder, cilantro, cumin, and salt into mashed black beans. Divide mixture into 4 patties and coat both sides of each patty with flour.
  3. 3 Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook patties until browned, 5 to 8 minutes on each side.

Chef's Notes

You can reduce the chili powder to 2 teaspoons to reduce the spiciness of the burgers.

  1. Slightly disappointed that it didn't turn out firm. I think I'm going to try mixing in a little brown rice next time; either that or perhaps an egg might work to hold it together. I am also going to add a bit more spices. I also used canned corn and it worked fine. The flavor - Read more ...
  2. I thought this turned out great. I read the reviews about it being dry so I skipped the flour formed them into burgers and put them right in the freezer. Then I baked them frozen at 350 for about 20-25 minutes. Served w/a slice of swiss cheese and some mustard yum! It wasn't dry at - Read more ...
  3. AMAZING, even better than I thought. I added a bit more salt then was recommended and a couples squeezes of fresh lemon juice. I also didn't add the jalepeno because I didn't have any but these came out so delicious. I melted a small square of cheddar cheese on top and the end and topped - Read more ...
  4. Really good really big! I was Thanksgiving full after eating these. I felt they were a little dry so next time I'm going to use a little less bread crumbs and try it without the flour. I think I may add more onion too. Thanks for a great recipe
  5. I did like the flavor however I feel like it needs more beans next time... it seems like it wasnt proportional and I had a hard time keeping them together and I added less breadcrumbs but the texture was still off... over all I plan to make these again but with some small tweaks.
  6. WE REALLY ENJOY THIS RECIPE..MY HUSBAND THOUGHT THEY WERE MUCH BETTER THAN THE ONES WE'VE BOUGHT IN THE PAST FROM THE GROCERY STORE..PASSING THIS RECIPE TO SEVERAL OF MY FRIENDS...
  7. These turned out great and I liked that they didn't require egg (not a fan). I nixed the jalapeño and added spicy chili-garlic sauce (1tsp) and I used half the amount of flour (and I still had plenty left over. I also recommend making more or thinner patties, as this mixture for 4 makes huge - Read more ...
  8. My husband thinks this is much improved with 1/4 cup parmesan. I like these best as a slider rather than a giant bean burger.
  9. Spicy Black Bean & Corn Burger Haiku: "Spicy spicy yum! Oops I forgot the flour. But liked these a bunch!" I used all the ingredients as written but usually when I make bean (black or garbanzo) I form them into patties then freeze them as they go right from freezer to hot skillet and hold - Read more ...
  10. These veggie burgers turned out great. I followed the footnote and used only 2 teaspoons of chili powder. They weren't too spicy. I might kick it up to 3 teaspoons next time. The use of the flour helped give the burgers browned look and helped keep them together. I'll be making these again. Thanks for - Read more ...
