Southwest Black Bean Burger

BY : PUBLISHED : November 5th, 2012 UPDATED: August 5th, 2022

You can never have enough veggie burger recipes.  This is a good one for those of you who like a little heat.  The one pictured is topped with a raspberry chipotle sauce I picked up at New Seasons.  This burger is very low in fat, and packed with protein and fiber. Enjoy!
