Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Make the chipotle mayonnaise by whisking together the mayonnaise and peppers until well-combined. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  2. Rinse beans, drain well and dry between two layers of paper towels. Mash with a fork until crumbly but not smooth.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat, and sauté the onion, poblano pepper and garlic until vegetables are soft and beginning to brown. Remove from heat and let cool for a few minutes. Once cooled, place in a food processor with the cilantro and process until mixture is finely chopped.
  4. Add the vegetable-cilantro mixture to the black beans, then add the rest of the ingredients and mix until well-combined. Form into four patties. Heat remaining olive oil in a large skillet and fry the patties over medium heat until crisp and browned on each side.
  5. Serve with chipotle mayonnaise on the side. These also freeze well; wrap each patty separately after forming (do not fry) and stack in a freezer bag.
