2 cups Pinquito Beans, prepared with Pinquito Bean Seasoning
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 small yellow onion, finely chopped
1 small jalapeno pepper, deseeded and diced
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
1 large egg
½ cup all purpose flour (can be replaced with gluten free flour)
2 hamburger buns
Tapatio hot sauce and Susie Q's Brand collaborated on a a vegetarian burger recipe with pinquito beans. They may have just created the best veggie burger recipe - full of flavor and packed with protein.


1.Prepare pinquito beans according to package directions
2.When your pinquito beans are cooked, use a strainer to rinse well, then pour into a medium sized mixing bowl.
3.Smash the beans with either a mortar and pestle or quickly in a food processor along with some olive oil. Then transfer to a bowl.
4.Chop onion, garlic, pepper and add into the bowl
5.Add remaining olive oil
6.Pour in flour
7.Crack in egg
8.Optional: add salt and pepper or Susie Q's Santa Maria Style Seasoning
9.With a rubber spatula, mix everything around really well - getting the egg blended and flour mixed in.
10.Heat a cast iron skillet or frying pan over medium heat and add some olive oil.
11.When the pan is hot, scoop bean mix with your hands, forming a small ball.
12.Place it into the pan and give it a gentle press with your spatula forming it into a burger.
13.Cook on each side for 5-7 minutes. (These are a lot more dense than your beef burger and will need more time to heat through)
14.When they are cooked well and golden brown on each side take them off the heat.
15.Grab your buns and begin making your burger.
16.Serving idea: Place some roasted red peppers down on the bun first, then the burger, then your guacamole, followed by the caramelized onions. Then put the bun top on.
17.Serve them right away while they are still nice and warm.
