Black Bean Burgers

1 can (15-16 oz.) black beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup cooked rice
1 small onion, chopped finely
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup salsa
4 split hamburger buns

Mash beans. Mix beans, rice, onions and 2 Tbl. salsa. Spray a 10" skillet with non-stick spray and heat over medium high heat. Divide mixture into 4 balls. Using your hands, press the balls into 1/2" thick "burgers." Cook 4-5 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. While these are cooking mix sour cream and remaining salsa together. Spread mixture on buns and top with burgers. Serves 4.

Changes - Add garlic or any other seasoning that you may like on your burgers. Use different flavors of salsa and add hot sauce for heat.
