DIRECTIONS

  • Cook the beans in water (with a pinch of salt) for approximately 1 hour, until soft but not mushy. (Pinto beans will take about 20 minutes longer.) Drain (but don't rinse) and cool.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a frying pan. Saute the onion, bell peppers and carrot until soft, about 10 minutes. Cool.
  • Process the beans in a food processor until roughly chopped (only a couple of pulses). Remove the beans and repeat that step for the vegetables.
  • Combine beans and vegetables in a large mixing bowl, season with cumin, cayenne pepper and salt and pepper to taste. Add the egg and then work the bread crumbs into the bean mixture, starting with small amounts and gradually adding more. It should hold together and have a texture similar to pie dough. If the mixture seems a little dry, add up to 1 tablespoon additional olive oil.
  • Form patties. Starting with a cold pan, saute with 1 tablespoon olive oil until golden, approximately 3 minutes on each side. Add a slice of cheddar and serve with mayonnaise.
