In a large pan over medium-high heat, heat the oil. Add garlic, onion, and minced jalapeno, and cook for 5 minutes.
Add minced tomato, chili powder, cumin, and paprika to the pan, continue to cook for 7 more minutes.
Remove from heat and place in the refrigerator to cool.
While the tomato, pepper, and onion mixture is cooling, place the beans in a food processor. Pulse beans until they are smooth and then transfer them to a large bowl.
Remove onion mixture from the refrigerator and mix in with the beans. Add BBQ sauce and bread crumbs to the bean mixture.
Form 4 patties out of the mixture.
Cook the patties on the stove in a nonstick pan for 5 to 7 minutes on each side.
Place the cooked patty on a bun, top with a slice of tomato, romaine lettuce, sliced jalapenos, and crispy fried onions.
