DIRECTIONS

  • Place half the rinsed beans in a blender or food processor with the broth and puree into a paste. Add more liquid if needed. Mix together the bean paste with the reserved whole beans in a mixing bowl.
  • In a nonstick skillet, add the teaspoon of oil (or chorizo) onions, garlic, red pepper and jalapeno and cook for 3 or 4 minutes. Add the cumin and chili powder and continue to cook another minute. Remove from heat and let cool a bit.
  • Combine the sauteed vegetables with the beans. Add the egg white, cornmeal, lime juice, cilantro. Let stand for 5-8 minutes to begin softening the cornmeal and allow the flavors to combine.
  • Form the mix into eight equal sized cakes.
  • Spray a non-stick skillet over medium high heat with cooking spray. Add the bean cakes to the skillet and cook until browned, just a minute or so on each side.
  • Combine the salsa with the yogurt and sour cream.
  • Serve the bean cakes with a dollop of the dairy/salsa topping and garnish with additional cilantro if desired.
