    justcallmetoni's Note:

    A recent trip to Cocso and I'm now the proud owner of a large stockpile of black beans. That has sent me combing my cookbooks for meal options using this healthful and versatile ingredients. Keeping what I find here for quick and easy access until I have a chance to try them. The original recipe for these delectable cakes included a tablespoon of chorizo, though I intend to make them vegetarian. These can also easily be made vegan with the use of a little soy yogurt. Serve these as a substantial appetizer or along with a lovely green salad as a light meal or lunch. With the chorizo, these are 3 points per serving. The recipe can easily be modified to be Core. The cakes also freeze well for reheating later.

      Place half the rinsed beans in a blender or food processor with the broth and puree into a paste. Add more liquid if needed. Mix together the bean paste with the reserved whole beans in a mixing bowl.
    2. 2
      In a nonstick skillet, add the teaspoon of oil (or chorizo) onions, garlic, red pepper and jalapeno and cook for 3 or 4 minutes. Add the cumin and chili powder and continue to cook another minute. Remove from heat and let cool a bit.
    3. 3
      Combine the sauteed vegetables with the beans. Add the egg white, cornmeal, lime juice, cilantro. Let stand for 5-8 minutes to begin softening the cornmeal and allow the flavors to combine.

      These weren't bad but they didn't blow me away. I doubled the cumin and chili powder. I omitted the jalapeno all together because I don't like a lot of heat. I added half of a green bell pepper for some more color. They didn't have a ton of flavor but it's a good starting point for a recipe. I'll be making them again for sure with a few changes. I liked the texture a lot.

      These were yummy! I took the advice of other reviewers and doubled the cumin, chili powder, garlic, and used a whole jalapeno (seeded). They were nice and spicy. I couldn't taste the chorizo, so I would leave it out next time (or add much more). Tried them as burgers (it made 4) with avocado and red pepper. I am not sure if I would recommend the large size though, they were hard to flip, and fell apart a bit. I did cook them at least 3 minutes per side to make sure the egg was cooked through. Took me close to an hour from start to finish. Great flavor. Thanks, toni!

      I can't say that DH loved these but I really enjoyed this recipe, I increased most of the ingredients and used dryed pepperoni in place of the chorizo, I chilled the mixture for a couple of hours before shaping, thanks Toni!...Kitten:)
