Mexican Black and Pinto Bean Burgers

What you need: 

1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 (15 ounce) can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
olive oil, as needed
1 small onion, diced (I used white)
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons onion powder
3 tablespoons Bragg's liquid aminos
hot sauce, to taste (I use Sriracha)
1 teaspoon chili powder
3/4 cup flour

What you do: 

1. Add beans to a medium bowl, and set aside. Saute the onion in olive oil or water, until soft and translucent. Mash the beans. I prefer to have mine 1/2 mashed and 1/2 whole beans.
2. Add the onions to the beans, as well as the rest of the ingredients with the exception of the flour. Mix well. Add the flour a few tablespoons at a time, while mixing in between.
3. Form the mixture into 1/2" thick patties and fry over medium heat in a small amount of oil, until firm and browned on both sides. Dress up however you want. I put my burgers on a corn tortilla with lettuce, and topped it with avocado slices.

This has become my very favorite bean burger.  The only difference I make is half amino and half liquid smoke.  I use this recipe as a base to many things.  I don't smash the beans and use it with rice to stuff peppers, I lightly smash and add peppers to the saute and stuff portabella caps with it.  I also sometimes add other things to the burgers like sauted mushrooms or quinoa.  If you add salsa you can stuff hot banana pepeprs for a more mexican dish. Such a simple easy recipe with so much potential.
