Submitted by: TONEILL1

Introduction

This is a delicious alternative to beef or turkey and it is delicious with a mexican flavor. I had these with homemade whole wheat low calorie hamburger buns and with a piece of low fat cheddar cheese melted on it.

    Interesting. I had a LOT of mixture, so I was able to make 6 patties, actually. Used fresh black beans I cooked to control sodium, cholula hot sauce and plain bread crumbs. Nutrition info better. Served with fresh sliced tomatoes and salsa rice with cheese. Yum!! - 7/17/11
