Spicy mexican bean burger #1

Yield: 8 Servings

Measure Ingredient
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
½ cup Flour
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.
