Gluten-Free Chipotle Black Bean Burgers

Black Bean Burgers. I haven’t really heard much about or even had a black bean burger until now. I always thought they wouldn’t taste very good, but you can’t really judge anything unless you try it!

Last week we met up with my cousins for dinner and they took us to one of their favorite places. My cousin is on the vegan diet and said the black bean burger was amazing and that I had to try it. So I took the opportunity to escape my comfort zone and try something new. I ordered the black bean burger (without the bun) with cheese and a side of sweet potato fries (my guilty pleasure). It was TO DIE FOR. Now I know it might not have been a home made burger, but it was still good. After having that little slice of heaven I looked up a recipe for black bean burgers and decided I was going to make my own. 

The recipe I found came from Iowa Girl Eats . The burgers looked so good in the pictures and the reviews were great! I didn’t follow the recipe completely though, since I made a double batch I added different amounts of the ingredients. In the end, I was able to make 10 black bean patties.
