Mexicali Burgers


Unbelievably easy to make and they hold together better then any other burger/pattie we’ve ever made!

2 cups black beans, cooked

1 cup onion, chopped

2/3 cup carrot, diced

1/2 cup cilantro, chopped

1/2 cup breadcrumbs

1/4 cup cornmeal

1/4 cup water

2 tbsp olive oil, plus more for frying

1 cayenne pepper, minced

1 tsp sea salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

Fresh salsa and sliced avocado for topping

  • In a frying pan over medium heat, cook the onions and cayenne pepper in olive oil for 10 minutes, stirring continuously
  • Add in carrots and cook for 3 more minutes
  • Remove from heat and transfer to a large mixing bowl
  • Add in beans, cilantro, breadcrumbs, cornmeal, salt and black pepper and mix well
  • Then, slowly add in water so the dough gets moist and sticks together
  • Form patties, then cook in another frying pan over medium/high heat in olive oil for 5 minutes on each side
