These spicy black bean burgers prove that meatless patties can still be packed with flavor and protein. Given a boost of smoky flavor from our Chipotle in Adobo, this twist on an all-American favorite is delicious topped with melted Chihuahua or Monterey Jack cheese, avocado and the salsa of your choice.
