      These were extremely good! I did not put in the jalapeno, since we were feeding them to young kids, but I did sprinkle in about 1/8 tsp of cayenne pepper to give it a little bit of kick. Worked out really well! They were a bit difficult to manage when forming, so I advise either sticking them in refrigerator/freezer for a while to form up, or else using a turner to transfer to the pan from the cutting board after forming. Overall, great recipe! We will be eating these again!

      Just love these! We didn't change a thing and ate them plain without bun as the protein for a lower-calorie, lower-fat meal. The cornmeal breading lends such a yummy, almost corn chip taste. Oops, something was changed: dried black beans, soaked overnight then cooked for 3 hours, in place of the canned. Thanks for this keeper.
