These mini black bean burgers are filled with so many amazing flavors. You don’t have to be a vegetarian to enjoy these healthy veggie sliders!

I am SO excited to share this easy veggie sliders recipe with you. These Mini Hummus Fajita Black Bean Burgers are SO delicious. This is my first time making a vegetarian burger recipe, and it’s my first time LOVING IT!

I have tried veggie burgers in restaurants before, but I’ve never been impressed. This mini black bean burger recipe is different, though. I challenge anyone and everyone to try it! Especially if you’ve never eaten a veggie slider before, or never thought you’d enjoy a veggie burger. This will change everything! 

I think these hummus and black bean burgers are just perfect for tailgating, especially if you want something a little healthier. Serve these up as a Super Bowl appetizer, and no one will even question the fact that they’re meatless. They’re just too good!

Whether you’re a vegetarian or a meat eater, you’re going to LOVE these delicious Hummus Fajita Black Bean Sliders!

Healthy Veggie Sliders (Vegetarian Burgers)

You guys know I love sports, so I’m always making new appetizers and game day recipes for tailgating or big game days. These mini black bean burgers are just PERFECT for the occasion. They’re filled with flavor, easy to eat, and best of all, they’re GOOD FOR YOU.

Yup, these delicious Hummus Fajita Veggie Sliders are healthy. They’re filled with all kinds of good things (black beans, veggies, hummus), so you won’t even have to feel guilty when you chow down on these.

I’ll be honest: the amazing flavors really surprised me. I’m a meat eater, so vegetarian burgers didn’t really appeal to me at first, but I’m trying to be a bit healthier for the New Year. And I’m glad I tried these black bean veggie sliders because they are SO yummy. I feel like I hit the veggie burger jackpot!

If you usually go for the meaty options, just give these a chance. I promise you won’t be disappointed!

The Best Hummus for Black Bean Burgers

The black bean burger patties I made, along with the fajita style veggies, are really good. But it was the addition of Sabra Hummus and  Sabra Guacamole that really made them shine. I am so thrilled to be partnering with Sabra to bring you this fun tailgating recipe. Sabra is the official dip sponsor of the Super Bowl, and they’re ready to shower you with coupons to celebrate!

Their hummus is perfection. I added a tablespoon into the black bean burger mixture. It is just what they needed to amp up the flavor. Their guacamole is hands down the best store-bought guac I have EVER tasted. Adding it as a topping to these fajita black bean veggie sliders took them to the next level. You’ll have leftover hummus AND guacamole when making this recipe, perfect for dipping another appetizer during the big game. Or use the guacamole to make a batch of margarita guacamole. I seriously cannot get enough.

How to Make Mini Black Bean Burgers

These vegetarian black bean burger sliders are so easy to make. I love how everything is fresh and made at home. Store-bought veggie burgers just never taste quite so good. But we’re making our own mini patties, and piling these veggie sliders up with all the best ingredients!

How to Make Black Bean Veggie Sliders:

  1. Place the black beans, corn, hummus, cilantro, fajita seasoning, olive oil, and salt & pepper in a food processor or blender, and pulse. Pour the paste into a bowl.
  2. In another bowl, whisk the eggs, then pour those into the bowl with the black bean paste. Add in the breadcrumbs and mix everything together well.
  3. Make 8 small patties out of the black bean burger paste, and place them on a baking sheet.
  4. Cook them in the oven for 20 minutes at 425°F. (Check the notes in the recipe card if you prefer to grill.)
  5. While those are in the oven, cook the veggies. Saute the peppers and onions over medium high heat, to get them nice and charred.
  6. Place a 1/4 slice of cheese over each patty when there is about 2 minute left.

Now you get to assemble the mini black bean burgers! This is the funnest part. Spread lots of guacamole on the bottom of the slider roll, place a burger patty, then top with the veggies (and a bit of extra hummus if you like!). These little veggie sliders are just so delicious!

If you want to use this recipe to make regular sized black bean burgers, just separate the black bean mixture into 4 patties instead of 8. Grab some regular hamburger buns, and the rest will be the same.
