Cooking Instructions

  1.  Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3.  In a large skillet or saute pan over medium heat, add oil.
  4.  Add onion and bell pepper and saute, approximately 5 minutes.
  5.  Add cumin, coriander, salt, pepper, and cayenne and saute for 1 minute.
  6.  Add orange juice, saute 1 minute, then turn off heat and allow to cool slightly.
  7.  In a bowl, add ground RW Garcia crackers, black beans, and egg.
  8.  Using a potato masher, mash all ingredients together and mix well.
  9.  Place sautéed vegetable mixture in the bowl and mix together well.
  10.  Split mixture into 6 patties (heaping ½ cup per burger) and place on lined baking sheet.
  11.  Cook for 20 to 25 minutes until firm and lightly crusted.
  12. Optional: Serve with sour cream or yogurt. For a lemon crema, add juice from ½ a lemon and mix thoroughly with the sour cream or yogurt. Note: whirl RW Garcia Sweet Potato Crackers in a food processor until they reach consistency of chunky corn meal or breadcrumbs. It will take ~1/2 to 2/3 box of crackers to make 1 cup. Mix and match whatever flavors you like!
