Spicy Black Bean Burger Haiku: "Yum, BB patties. Expected more of a kick, but still they were good." W/ the Sriracha, chili powder & jalapeno, I anticipated fire-breath w/ these, but they were surprisingly tame (well, OK, I wouldn't have given one to my pre-schooler), but I like things scorching. I used finely-crushed Saltine crackers (out of bread crumbs), and frozen corn (a handful of what was left in a bag to avoid opening a can.) I skipped the "coat-in-flour" step and formed, wrapped, and froze mine instead, b/c everytime I make chick pea or BB patties, I find that freezing them holds them together much better, and they go directly from freezer to skillet w/ no problems. I did mine in EVOO and ate alongside a basic salad, rather than burger-style. Nummy!


I tried the recipe, the flavor was exactly what I was going for but they seemed dry. Actually on here now looking for reviews or comments to make them more moist


Tasted great, but they took forever to make. If you're not an expert at frying (which admittedly I am not) you might have trouble with this recipe. Although I followed the directions exactly, the patties kept falling apart in the skillet. Not a recipe I will attempt again. Way too much work.
