Ingredient Tips

Divided oil
For the oil, use 1 tablespoon to oil grates and 2 tablespoons to cook chili and onions.

Directions

1

In a large container, soak dried black beans in water and cover overnight. Drain beans and rinse.

Hot Tip: Beans will double in size, so add water as needed.
2

In a medium-size, cast-iron skillet, heat 2 tablespoons canola oil over medium heat until smoking.

3

Add onion and jalapenos. Stir frequently and cook until onions are translucent. Add garlic and stir while cooking for 1-2 minutes. Add chipotle chili and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Transfer mixture to a large mixing bowl.

4

Place cashews in food processor bowl and pulse until finely
chopped. Add to bowl with onions and chilis.

Hot Tip: It should take about 10-12 pulses to finely chop the cashews.
5

Add beans and shredded cheese to food processor. Pulse until roughly chopped. Transfer to the bowl with onion, chili and cashew mix.

Hot Tip: It should take about 8-10 pulses to roughly chop the beans and shredded cheese.
6

Add mayonnaise, egg and bread crumbs to processor bowl. Season with salt and pepper and thoroughly mix together.

7

Scoop a handful of mixture with your hands to form 6-8 round patties. Place on plate and put in freezer for 15 minutes to solidify.

Hot Tip: You can use a large biscuit cutter as an alternative to using your hands
8

Oil grates and preheat grill on medium-high heat for 10-15 minutes. Take patties out of freezer, lightly brush each patty with olive oil and place on grill oil-side down and coat other side.

9

Cook patties 3-5 minutes, or until oiled side browns. Flip and cook for another 3-5 minutes. Top with
cheese for the last minute and remove from grill.

10

Assemble patties on hamburger buns and top with desired toppings and condiments.
