    Very good base recipe. I added some quiona, walnuts and pecans: raisins might work well too. The use of bread crumbs helped. Also I pulsed the finished mixture a few times in the food processor for better blending and hold ability. I also tried it backed in meat ball shapes and it worked well. <br/><br/>Good way to use left over rice and beans or peas.<br/><br/>Thanks

    This was very good. I used a little bit of cayenne pepper instead of chili powder. I also chopped up and added baked walnuts. Yum!
