These are very tasty. DH and I are "heat wuzzies" so no jalapeno for us but a little bit of green pepper. The veggie flavors are very compatible. I singed my first try so a little bit "camping style" but we will do these again. Like someone else, I made 1/3 of the recipe since there is only two of use. Tasty and satisfying. This is a fine example of a satisfying vegetarian food that is interesting enough to eat in its own right and (no offense intended) doesn't have to settle for being a meat substitute. I had cilantro and I think it's a must in this recipe to keep the taste bud interest quotient high. Thanks, Di. You have very dependable recipes.

These are the most delightful burgers--they're a snap to make, they taste great, and they're even healthy!! I first saw this recipe in The Coastal Living Cookbook*, put out by Coastal Living magazine, and have made it many times since. I usually make one third of the recipe and that makes three nice size burgers. Even my husband, a confirmed bean hater, enjoys them (smart man--lol!!). Thanks for posting this ratherbeswimmin'!!! (*Note: The Coastal Living Cookbook version lists 3/4 cup of chopped fresh cilantro and 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil.)

These were great! Never made black bean burgers thought it would be nice to try something different. Had all of the ingredients at home minus the cilantro. Instead I used an 1/8 tsp of cumin...Yummy! Would definitely make again. Cooked them on the grill pan and served with salsa on top instead of in a bun. Husband thought they were great in fact he finished mine.

This might not be a "real" hamburger but the texture is close and it is filling. I am on a temporary no red meat diet and the rest of the family had burgers. I tried these without the jalapeno. They were quite tasty.

I really liked these burgers. Easy to make and delicious. Even my husband liked them and he is not big on any meat imitation entree. He requested them again already. Thanks!

I like the texture very much; held together nicely while cooking. I need to tweek the ingredients to suit our tastes, tho. Made for the TEX-MEX event in Cooking Photos.
