These Black Bean Sliders are easy to make, good for you and taste so good! (The directions are for slider size, but it’s super easy to increase the size to make Black Bean Burgers instead.)
I have a food bucket list…
It sounds kind of silly, but there are just so many recipes I want to cook! The difficult part is just finding the time (and energy) to make them.
As I was going through the recipes of my assigned blog for the Secret Recipe Club I noticed Jennifer, of Mother Thyme, had a recipe for Black Bean Sliders. (She has a crazy amount of recipes on her blog, you should check them out if you have time.)
Black Bean Sliders are definitely on the food bucket list. I frequently buy the Spicy Black Bean Burgers from Morning Star Farms and my family loves black beans, so I knew this was the recipe I wanted to make.
They were so good! The consistency was a little different than the store bought versions (softer in the middle) but they were just as good. My daughter ate two, and my son (who had strep throat) ate his entire slider!
I made the sliders almost like Jennifer’s, but I omitted a few of the spices and did not make the Avocado Mayonnaise (I am not a mayo person.) We did have some leftover guacamole, so we topped our burgers with that.
This is what the cooked patties looked like up close…
