These Black Bean Burgers are a spicy blend of black beans, kidney beans, chipotle chiles, and salsa that makes not only a tasty burger, but also one that won't fall apart on the grill.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Using a food processor, grind oatmeal into a powder (flour) if possible and set aside.
Drain beans into a colander and rinse well. Spread beans onto a cookie sheet and dry them as best you can. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 20 minutes.
Add beans, oats, cornmeal, salsa, chipotle pepper, and all remaining spices together in a food processor and process until smooth., scraping down sides as necessary.
Form into 5 burger shaped patties and allow to set in refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
Grill burgers as usual and garnish with your favorite toppings.
These burgers can probably be baked or pan fried if grilling is not an option (although I have not tried these methods myself). A George Forman indoor grill would also work well.
