1 (16 oz) can of black beans, drained & rinsed

1/2 green bell pepper, large chopped pieces

1/2 onion, large chopped pieces

3 garlic cloves, peeled

1 egg

1 TBSP chipotle hot sauce, more if you like it ūüôā

2 TBSP cumin, more if you like it like I do!

bread crumbs (I use panko. Use gluten free panko if needed)

Coconut oil


In a bowl, mash the beans.

Put chopped bell pepper, onion & garlic cloves in a food processor until finely chopped. Stir it into the mashed beans.

In another bowl mix the egg, cumin & chipotle 

Stir egg mix into black beans. 

Mix in bread crumbs until mixture is sticky and holds together. 

Make into patties. 

Heat enough coconut oil in skillet to cover the bottom. Cook the patties slow on a med/low heat until brown then flip. 


1 cup canned coconut cream (Trader Joes) 1/3 cup of your favorite chipotle hot sauce (more if you like it!) 1/4 cup olive oil 1 TBSP ground chia seeds (rich in fiber and Omegas) 1 garlic clove, pinch of sea salt.  Throw all of these ingredients into a food processor and blend until everything is mixed well. Give it a taste and add more chipotle if needed. Put in fridge until ready to use. 

I like serving these on whole wheat thin buns with avocado, lettuce, tomatoes & red onion

 OR over a handful of mixed greens with all the toppings and drizzling the Chipotle Mayo over it!
