Mini Spicy Bean Burger Recipe


These are great for dinner parties or Mexican themed nights. I created this recipe from scratch and was pleasantly surprised with how yummy they tasted! Arjun also enjoyed his (I excused chilli and salt from his). I hope you enjoy x

Makes: about 20 mini bean burgers

Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 40g tortilla chips 
  • 60g cheddar cheese
  • 2 slices of bread (for breadcrumbs)  
  • 1 tin chick peas
  • 1 tin kidney beans
  • 1 teaspoon tomato purée
  • 1 tablespoon oregano 
  • 1 green chilli 
  • 1 tablespoon of crushed garlic  
  • A handful of coriander  
  • 1 teaspoon cumin 
  • 1.5 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon red chilli 
  • 1 red onion 
  • 2 shallots 

Method:

  1. Roughy mash the chickpeas and kidney beans using the back of a fork. Crush the tortilla chips
  2. Toast the bread and grind in food blender to make breadcrumbs. 
  3. Dice the shallots and red onion and chop the green chilli and coriander finely 
  4. Mix all the ingredients together and combine using a fork
  5. Once mixed well and formed a mouldable texture, scoop a tablespoon of the mixture at a time and pat using your hands in to a small burger shape
  6. Shallow fry until browned on either side 
  7. If you’d like them a little crispier, bake further for 25 minutes or until reached desired texture. 

  


    Serving suggestion: these taste delicious topped with homemade salsa, gherkins, tomato and cheese
