Yield: 8 Servings
|1 can||(16-oz) red kidney beans; drained and mashed|
|½ small||Onion; coarsely chopped|
|½||Green pepper; coarsely chopped|
|1||Carrot; steamed, mashed|
|⅛ cup||Picante sauce or salsa|
|1 cup||Bread crumbs|
|1 teaspoon||Black pepper or to taste|
|1 dash||Chili powder|
Mix all ingredients together. Add more flour to create a firmer mixture, or more salsa if mixture is too stiff. Form into balls and smash into patties.
Bake at 450 degrees for 15-20 minutes, until firm, brown and done. Serve on a whole wheat bun with lettuce, tomato and salsa. Accompany with tortilla chips and a large glass of iced tea. These can be grilled or pressed in those new-fangled sandwich presses... a lot quicker and tastier than baking. The judges suggested adding ½ teaspoon of salt to the recipe.
