STEP 2: In a medium bowl, mash your black beans with a fork until the mixture is nice and thick and pasty.

STEP 3: In a food processor, finely chop up your bell pepper, onion, and garlic. Then stir it all up into your mashed beans.

STEP 4: In a small bowl, stir together your egg, chili powder, cumin, and chili sauce.

STEP 5: Stir your egg mixture into your mashed beans. Then, mix in your bread crumbs until the mixture is sticky and holds together. You can then divide up your mixture into four solid patties.

STEP 6: If you’re grilling, place your patties on foil and grill for about 8 minutes on each side. If baking, place the patties on a baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes on each side.

And there you have it! The perfect plant-based mega-munch for parties, family events, and barbecues!
