Great base for a veggie burger. I think next time I will go with spicier chili beans (I used mild, unsure of how they would turn out) to add an extra kick, and probably sample adding other veggies like the previous reviewer did for some extra flavor. I added some pepperjack cheese to mine, as I was eating it without the bun, and that was also a lovely addition. Thanks for sharing!
