This is a great recipe. I cooked it for my husband and 2 little girls. I substituted the chili powder for a teasppon of curry paste. Totally yummy
This recipe was great! I didn't put as much chili powder, so they weren't very spicy. I think they'd be good with the addition of mexican spices. I served them with wilted spinach salad and lime & black pepper potato wedges. Thanks for sharing!
My vegan wife really liked them. Very good flavor, easy to make and they looked like "real" burgers when fried up! Will be making them again! I didn't have the beans they called for so I subbed a can of white/green lima beans and a can of black beans.
