Preparation

  1. Using fork, mash beans in medium bowl. Mix in onion, breadcrumbs, 2 tablespoons salsa, cumin and hot pepper sauce.
  2. Season with salt and pepper. Using moistened hands, shape bean mixture into two 3- to 4-inch-diameter patties.
  3. Prepare barbecue (medium-high heat) or preheat broiler. Brush barbecue rack with oil. Grill burgers until heated through, about 3 minutes per side.
  4. Grill cut sides of buns until lightly toasted, about 1 minute. Transfer burgers to bottom halves of buns.
  5. Spoon 1/4 cup salsa over each. Cover with tops of buns. Serves 2. This recipe can be doubled or tripled.

You'll need to use a pareve or dairy grill pan if you plan on passing bowls of real sour cream and shredded lettuce and chopped tomatoes to accompany these Southwest-style meatless bean burgers.
