Black Bean Burgers...All credit for this recipe goes to Becky Burns!

I got this recipe off of Becky's neat blog.  Check it out for other great recipes: Vintage Mixer
I was a little hesitant to try this recipe at first...But..I am all about experimenting with cooking right now so I gave it a shot and o.m.g. so good! This is a must try! I add some cheddar cheese, mustard and sour cream (weird combo, I know..its all I had) with some lettuce and had some tortilla chips and salsa on the side! SO GOOD! and a good alternative instead of meat if you are wanting something less greasy. enjoy!

2 14 oz cans of black beans, drained and rinsed
3 Tbsp mayonnaise
1/3 cup plain dry bread crumbs (I used planko)
2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp dried oregano, crumbled
1/4 tsp cayenne
1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro
3 Tbsp vegetable oil
4 soft hamburger buns
accompaniments: sour cream, salsa, avocado, lettuce

Pulse 1 can on black beans in food processor with mayo, bread crumbs, cumin, oregano, and cayenne until coarse puree forms. Transfer to bowl and stir in cilantro and remaining black beans. Form mixture into 4 patties.
Heat oil in 12-inch heavy skillet over medium-high heat until it shimmers. Cook burgers until outsides are crisp and lightly browned, turning once, about 5 minutes total. Serve on buns.
* note: if the burgers fall apart a little don't worry. They'll still taste amazing and you can reform them on the buns. Or you can put them in tortillas for a black bean burritos.
