    Sharlene~W's Note:

    In my search for something my vegetarian teenage daugher will eat, I ran across this recipe in the Jan/Feb 2005 Cooking Light. I sauteed the onions and jalapenos so they would be softer. Now, you might ask what to do with the leftover chiles and adobo sauce once you open the can. Try freezing them in an ice-cube tray. Remove frozen cubes from tray, cover in plastic wrap, and store in a zip-top bag in the freezer. Use cubes to flavor chili or next time you need it in a recipe.

    Chipotle Mayonnaise

    Remaining ingredients


    1. 1
      To prepare burgers, combine the first 10 ingredients in a large bowl. Add pinto beans and corn; partially mash with a fork. Divide bean mixture into 4 equal portions, shaping each portion into a 3 1/2-inch patty, and refrigerate for 10 minutes. (I didn't like the idea of those whole corn kernels in the mixture, so I gave them a couple of pulses in the food processor. That made the mixture a bit softer, so I ended up adding a bit more bread crumbs to stiffen it up).
    2. 2
      To prepare chipotle mayonnaise, combine mayonnaise and 1 teaspoon chipotle in a small bowl; set aside. If you want it smoother, give it a whirl in the food processor.
    3. 3
      Heat canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add patties to pan, and cook 4 minutes on each side or until thoroughly heated. Toast buns. Place patties on bottom halves of buns; top each patty with 1 tablespoon mayonnaise, 1 lettuce leaf, and top half of bun.

      We loved these bean patties! They were appealingly crisp, spicy, flavorful and filling. I didn't have any cilantro and I cut back on the hot ingredients just a bit (personal preference). I used a cup of frozen corn, which I sauteed with the onion and jalapeno before adding to the mixture, per the chef's suggestion. I needed a little additional panko crumbs, too. I didn't serve these on buns, but just as patties with the yummy mayo sauce and sides of roasted asparagus and toasted croissants. Delicious dinner!
