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.

Great idea Martha! My youngest loves black beans and rice... bet he would really enjoy these. Hubby on the other hand, would probably scowl at the thought of them. He's not a black bean or rice fan. I'll have to try them when I have a left over meat to feed "Mr. Carnivore" lol
