Makes 6 patties (or 15 ‘mini’ sliders)

1 15 oz. can of black beans, drained and rinsed
1 15 oz. can of white beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
1 cup cooked brown rice
1/4 cup plain breadcrumbs
1/2 cup oats
1/4 cup corn kernels
1 large tomato, diced and de-seeded
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 tbsp. soy sauce
1 tbsp. nutritional yeast
1 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. salt
1 3.5 oz. package of Hail Merry Chimayo Chili Pecans, crushed medium-fine

In a large bowl combine the beans, onion, and garlic. Using a potato masher lightly smash the beans.  Add in the rest of the ingredients except the pecans and stir well.  Place the crushed pecans on a small plate.  Form the burger patties with your hands and dredge in the nuts on each side of the burger.  Cook in a lightly greased frying pan on medium-high heat for about 5 minutes on each side or until the sides are golden.  Serve with a toasted bun, avocado and caramelized onions.
