Serves: 4
  • 1 (14-ounce) can black beans drained and rinsed
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • ½ tsp. chili powder
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 egg
  • ⅓ bread crumbs
  • 1 medium sweet potato, cooked and mashed (no skin)
  • ½ cup Mexican blend cheese (or cheddar)
  • Tortillas (corn or flour)
  1. Preheat over to 350F. Add beans, oil and spices to a food processor and pulse until chunky (not pureed).
  2. In a medium bowl combine bean mixture, egg, bread crumbs and mashed sweet potato until well combined.
  3. Form this mixture into small patties (about 8-10) and place on a sprayed cookie sheet. Brush each with some olive oil.
  4. Cook for about 15 minutes and then flip and cook an additional 5-10 minutes or until lightly browned.
  5. Heat tortillas in microwave or toaster oven and cut holes the same size as the sliders. Fill each burger with preferred toppings like avocado, salsa, more cheese and onions.
